  1. Hi all. Our EM practice is in the works of developing a head PA/NP position (manager in a sense). Currently we have a liaison who is a physician-but the physician wants to turn it over to the APPs. Since this is a new trial process for our group, I wanted to reach out and see what the job description and stipend/benefits your group gives to the PA/NP who is essentially "in charge" of the APPs at your practice. If you could tell me the type of practice you work in, location (state), job description for head APP (rough expectations), and stipend/benefits for that position I would greatly appreci
  2. Back in March, as hospitals across the country shut down electives and we were being furloughed left, right, and center, I was very concerned that the “temporary” pay and benefits cuts would prove permanent. At my institution we took hours reduction in addition to pay cuts, our 403b match was halted, and PTO was frozen. In July our pay and hours were reinstated. We were permitted PTO accrual and use in August. In September our 403b match comes back. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. How is everyone else doing now?
  3. Hi there, EM PA here, our group is looking to moving towards single doc/PA coverage overnight, whereas we previously ended shifts around 1am. Wondering who of you staff overnight shifts and if you receive an overnight differential pay bump. If so, what is it? If you're more comfortable contacting me directly would be GREAT help. Attempting to get some data together to show higher ups its common for overnight diff in EM world. Also please include what state you work in. Thank you in advance!!!!

  6. Hi all, I've been working as a general medical provider for a state psychiatric hospital for about one year. I'm leaving my current position at the end of June, but will be staying on PRN. It's just not a good fit for me professionally to remain here full-time. I was offered a hospitalist job today at a 590-bed Level I Trauma and Stroke center. They are building a 42-bed observational unit which will open January 2018, and this unit will be the main focus of my position once it opens. Until then, I will work at the regional sister hospital (which is 20 miles away) rounding on all u
  7. Hello, Pre-PA here. I was wondering if anyone has insight into the current and likely future job market in the DFW area, or into saturated markets for PA's in general. I would intend to live in the DFW area after graduation. I gather that due to the presence of two PA schools and 3 NP schools in the area that we are pretty saturated. I'm trying to understand what this means in terms of current and future benefits and salary. I am a non-traditional applicant working a job with a good salary currently. I'm trying to justify foregoing 30 months of salary at my current job for schoo
  8. Hello, I recently graduated and was offered a New Grad Hospitalist position in the New England area at a community hospital without some specialties and would like some feedback on the offer... Compensation: $48/hr, annually $99,840, plus incentive bonus (unknown amount), shift differential for night shifts $3/hr Schedule: 3 12hr shifts, alternating weeks of days and nights, 2 locations couple blocks apart, 6-10pts per day, great coaching and MD support, closed ICU/OBGYN, all surgical emergencies go to larger state hospital nearby PTO: 280hr allotment for all CME, sick, vac
  9. How much is too much to spend on CME? How does your CME allowance (if you have one) influence the programs you attend, if at all? I've been wondering lately how (if) this affects the medical knowledge of some individual clinicians. For example, does anyone feel that they aren't able to learn what they need to because they don't have room in their budget for a particular CME program/course/etc? I know this will also depend heavily on the program in question (I have no particular one in mind right now). I'll easily spend close to $2k for a good conference because I know it'll be reimbu
  10. Any derm PA's out there who work at Kaiser, Sutter, CA Skin Institute, Berman, or other larger corporations? I'm working in private practice now and have a lot of flexibility with my schedule which is nice, but not the kind of benefits and salary I think I could potentially have at the other. Could you share your experience as far as schedule, salary and/or benefits? And, if you've worked both private and/or corporate, which do you prefer and why? Thank you!
  11. Have moved onto my 3rd job offer a as new grad. The only downfall is no health insurance offered since it's a small privately owned newer urgent care. Maybe I can get some experience and take some time before settling into something that checks ALL the boxes? Everything is ok about it: hours, pay, closed holidays, extra flat rate for each shift beyond the 3-12's a week, CME, PTO, malpractice covered. And it's in the area of Florida we've been hoping to relocate to. I feel like it might not be that big of deal to cover my own health insurance (individual plan) for a couple-few years. Knock on w
  12. Hi everyone, I am a new graduate, and I just received an Ortho PA job offer in coastal California. I will start training (same salary) as soon as I finish my boards, while I am waiting for my licenses to process. The job is M-F from 8-5. OR 1-2 days/week, but not when I initially start. Call time was not mentioned in the contract, but it's about once/month (no additional pay) What's offered: - Base Salary: 100k - At-will contract; If I stay less than a year, then I have to repay the licenses, relocation bonus, CME. etc. back to the employer. - Health insurance, vision, and
  13. I recently interviewed with and was offered a part-time position with a private practice foot & ankle surgery group in Virginia. The job would be clinic only and no call. The exact schedule is to be determined at this point but I suspect somewhere close to 20 hours a week based on my availability likely to include some Saturdays. I have about 5 years of experience in general orthopedics, urgent care/occ health, and med/surg. This practice has not ever had a PA before but is very open to the idea and big on work/life balance. They essentially told me to take some time to write up my ideal h
  14. Hi all! Have any PAs in North Carolina have had experience working for some of the larger ED management groups such as MEMA, ApolloMD, or US Acute Care Solutions/EMP? What have been some of your experiences, good and bad? How do you feel about benefits, salary, work environment, and the ever important work-life balance? Any advice to a new grad who plans to work in the ED right out of school? Thanks so much...any input is greatly appreciated!!

  16. I started practicing 2 years ago as a PA in an Ortho-Spine practice, my responsibilities including First assist 2.5 days/week, rounding, clinic 2.5 days/week, rare call, rare weekends, also administrative tasks such as compiling surgical outcomes, assisting the training of staff, implementing new policies and procedures with staff etc. I was't excited about my initial salary and benefits but I have really enjoyed the work. I have gotten significant raises over the past couple of years but during my last raise/review there were interesting comments about decreasing my rate of salary growth wh
  17. Hey Guys and Girls, I am sure most of you current undergraduates have heard of some of the better PA programs around the nation. Many of you are going to produce competitive PA school applications in the process of hunting for schools. This question is more geared towards people who have been in PA school and experienced life on the other side of PA schooling. That being said, I think the answer is beneficial to most of us undergrads. We know about programs like Duke, Pacific, Emory, etc. Their qualifications are strict and their prestige is evident. However, on the chance that admis
  18. Fellow Psychiatry PAs; I am rapidly approaching my 1 year mark with an outpatient psychiatry practice. I am looking for any input anyone has to offer WRT salary, bonus, contract terms etc. I graduated approximately 1 year ago and I have only had this one job since. I recently changed my schedule from 5 days a week at 8 Hours per to 4 days at 10 hours per. On average I see XX patients per week. Currently my salary is competitive and we do get some benefits. We get 15 vacation days for year 1 then 20 per year, 5 sick days, 6 federal holidays, 5 CME days and $3,000. There is a bonus structur
  19. I am a family practice PA about to start negotiations with a joint replacement group in a large city in the southeast US. I have 3 years experience as a PA-C in family practice as well as previous athletic training experience (ATC). I really want to move into ortho for the long-term, and I think this might be a good practice to go with. They office manager has started the whole "be thinking about what you want in terms of compensation" discussion - so I've been thinking. Will you guys give me feedback on whether this sounds reasonable or not? - Mon-Fri, normal business hours, no round
  20. I am a PA-C, ATC planning on switching from FP to ortho soon. I have been working as a PA in a non-profit family practice clinic treating patients without insurance for 2.5 years. After learning a LOT at my current position, I am ready to move on to my first love, orthopedic surgery. I currently have a couple of interviews lined up, and I haven't thought about money in a couple of years. I want to make sure I'm starting out in the appropriate salary range and not selling myself short. Thoughts?
  21. Am I allowed to officially sign documents PA-C once I have passed the NCCPA exam? Do these laws differ by state?
  22. Hi I had a few questions about working for the VA Do you guys get your licences and etc reimbursed? How about CME and the expenses for state and national conferences, travel? Etc? Do you like working at the VA? Suggestions, would you take a job there again? What are the negatives? Thanks so much fellas.
  23. Does your job have retirement benefits or are you just saving for retirement? My knee doctor said I would probably be in a wheelchair around my early 60s.. making it impossible to work. This is making me want to go into a physical therapy program because I could work in a wheelchair as a PT.
