  1. Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!
  2. Does anyone work for or know of someone that works for Rush University Medical Center in Chicago? I am wondering what their emergency medicine advanced practice provider compensation model is like considering they are one of the only hospital institutions that don't use the EM staffing companies (TeamHealth, Envision, VEP, Vituity, etc.). How have you found their rates/benefits to compare to the staffing companies if you've worked for them previously?
  3. Hello all, Recent new graduate here. I just received an offer from a small private, moderately paced urgent care/primary care office and I have a few questions about some items in my contract. Not sure if the items are reasonable for PAs in my area and looking to get some feedbacks from actual PAs in practice rather than just my parents. Here are a few details of my contract: - 18 month contract with required 90 days written notice of termination - 96K salary with bump after completing "training CME" courses paid for by the practice. 17 weeks to complete the courses and salary will increase to 101K - Productivity bonuses based on wRVUs and charts completed and coded within 48 hours - PTO accrued based on time worked. Begin accruing PTO 1 month after completing 90 day introductory period. PTO is to be used for PERSONAL DAYS, SICK DAYS, and VACATION time. (contract states that in first 0-3 years I can accumulate up to 100 hrs/2.5 weeks PTO) - Non-compete clause during employment and 12 months after termination. Cannot engage in primary, multi-specialty, urgent care offering similar services within a 2 mile radius of any clinics. (This can be kind of limiting for me due to the central location of the clinics in the city - I am considering a negotiation for this to be removed or possibly brought down to 1 mile) - Still need clarification of type of malpractice insurance, but it is offered. (Not sure if I will require tail coverage yet but will be finding out) - Multiple Heath insurance policies available but not covered 100% by practice. Most expensive policy will cost $162 Bi-weekly for employee coverage (No additional spouse or family coverage) Additionally, I have a few concerns about orientation and training on site. Currently, both clinics have single provider coverage with experienced NPs. Will be asking tomorrow about my expectations for providing single-provider coverage and working on my own. Was told by employed NP that the providers at both clinics are in constant communication via phone and text. Also assures me that the Medical Director is often on site and always quickly answers phone calls and texts. Medical director seems very eager to teach but I still have concerns about his expectations for me as a new grad due to his experience with mainly experienced NPs. ALSO, the salary is VERY tempting and I don't want to be blinded.. Thank you all for any help or feedback you can give!
  4. Hello everyone! I am currently looking for PA's practicing in the Chicago Land Area! I would love the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the profession! Please reach out if you know of anyone willing to take on a student :) Thank you for your time!
  5. I will be moving to Chicago after graduation in June - trying to get a feel for the place. I see some of the past posts are a bit outdated - so wanted to get the new skinny on things. Please feel free to answer some or all the questions below. For starters: 1. Average Salary for new PA grad 2. Are there any particular hospitals with any PA-ran services or known to be "PA friendly" for that matter? Interested in job opportunities in Internal Medicine or Outpatient Medicine at this time but still open to any good initial job opp post PA school. 3. Any licensing advice to make the process smooth is greatly welcomed Many Thanks!
  6. Hi All, I'm seeking some help or advice on arranging my rotations in Chicago, IL. Since my school is in Arizona, they will allow me to do out of state rotations but I am ultimately responsible for providing the preceptor. Have you or anyone you know had a preceptor you recommend in the Chicagoland area? ANY and all advice would be greatly appreciated!!
  7. Hi everyone, I'm currently 3 months into my clinical year at a PA program in Ohio, but I'm looking for rotations in downtown Chicago area where I'm originally from. So far I've only been able to find one rotation at a hospital I used to work at. Anybody have any advice or have any leads on finding more clinical sites? I've already completed EM and FM, I'm primarily looking for Peds but I know that is tough in the city. Thanks!
