  1. My SP is retiring and selling his FM practice. I am looking for advice on salary negotiation with the new supervising physician. The new SP has big aspirations for the practice and plans to add many updates which is exciting but it appears that it will also come with quite the workload increase. I suspect that we will be marketing the practice more which means more patients. (I currently average 15 per day) He wants me to credential at the local hospital and round on our patients in the morning if they were admitted to the hospital in the morning prior to seeing patients
  2. I have a prior MS in Exercise Physiology (research emphasis) and then completed a dual degree PA program getting a MS in Management w/ the School of Business before starting the MMS for PA. The extra degrees will certainly be resume builders, but how much should I expect to use them for negotiating starting salaries? Should I expect a higher starting offer due to them or is that naive? Starting to have discussions with some practices and was hoping to get some ideas on the value those provide before it moves towards contract talks. I don't want to sell myself short, but don't want to come off
  3. Tried to post this once and I don’t think it posted - apologies for duplicates. I’m in a bit of a complicated situation. I’ve been up for contract renegotiation since July after a year with a hospital based multi specialty surgical group. I was originally hired as the first and only PA for two generals, a urologist and a GI. One general and the GI opted not to use me, so I split my time almost evenly between general surgery and urology in both clinic and OR. CURRENT CONTRACT DETAILS: Oklahoma, full time 10 days call/month, $105k salary, $2500 and 3 days CME, 26 days PTO including
  4. Hi! I'm new to the forum and wanted to ask some career advice from all the pros out there. I will graduate in 6 weeks and have been lucky enough to receive two job offers in a pretty rural area. However, I'm really struggling between the two. I've made a pros/cons list and still haven't come to any conclusion. One is my ideal speciality (peds ortho) while the other is in a speciality I've never wanted to work in but seems to offer a fantastic work environment, SP, and more money. I was approached by the physician for this job and considered it as jobs are somewhat scarce in my area. I
  5. Hello! New grad PA here. I did a rotation in orthopaedics where I did first-assist the majority of the time. Just received an orthopaedic surgery offer- This is in Massachusetts.

  6. Just received a contract for a neurology position and was looking for advice on negotiating. For reference, I am a new grad PA in Chicago suburbs, the position is in outpatient and inpatient neurology working 40 hours a week and weekend call, working for a small private group.

  7. Hello PA friends! I have an upcoming interview.... my very first one!!... and they were kind enough to send me the contract in advance. Reading through it I see an early termination clause in which I would be asked to pay FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS if I were to leave before the end of three years. I love longevity, but this is my first job out of PA school( and I don't graduate until December), and I don't have $50 much less $50,000. So that's a no. And there's not even a commensurate level of sign on bonuses (clearly no one is giving me 50k to sign on or any sign on bonus for that
  8. Hi all. I am a new grad who has been offered a position in inpatient psychiatry at $90K. M-F, no weekends, no holidays for 6 months. Then I will be transitioned to 3 12's in admissions. 7A-7P. All benefits included. CME of $2000. Retirement match 200%. 3 weeks vacation. 2 weeks sick. 5 PTO days. It is an "at-will" position with the welcome letter acting as a "contract". Is this reasonable? Should I counter the salary? HELP! Also, do you think if I take psych as my first job that I will be pigeon-holed in the future? Say if I want to move to something more general? This is my only concern.
  9. Hello, new grad here in NYC just got offered a primary care contract with a private practice seeking expert opinions. 1 doc, office manager, 3 nurses, and front desk. Doc is super nice and willing to teach, got really good vibes. A little background about this practice is that it is about 70% Chinese population, which is probably why they want to hire me (bilingual). It is worth noting that I will be the first PA the doc has ever worked with. This is a rough draft that does not cover everything. But I have given them a counter offer and they have agreed to meet up and negotiate. Anyth
  10. I have been at my place of work for approx 10 months. I started directly out of school and did a 6 month "training/residency" which I was paid $52000. I started seeing patients in September 3 days a week and training the remaining 2 days until October. I currently have a full schedule 4 days a week. I average 28-32 patients a day and see anywhere from 7-14 new patients a day. My current contract salary is $80,200 with 9 days paid vacation/sick days, 3 days CME, and $1500 CME. I have health and dental insurance through work. I am going to start seeing patients for a half day shortly and will pu
  11. Hello! I am a new graduate, and have searched long and hard to find pediatric practices willing to hire PAs. I was recently offered a full-time contract with a reputable local peds private practice. I have zero experience with medical contracts, and I'm terrible at advocating for myself :( I was hoping some of you more experienced PAs could help me with a few points of concern with my contract. 1. The starting salary is $75k + bonuses. The bonus structure is not included in the contract, and my supervising doc was unable to give me a concrete formula for how bonuses are determined. 2.
  12. I am in dermatology and have been with the practice 8 years. I am cutting to part time but going from salary + incentive to incentive only (no base pay). I see 30 pts a day but will increase. They are offering 23%of collections which seems low. I usually collect around $500k a year working full time. Any suggestions on incentive percentages for incentive only pay?
  13. Hi, I am recently a new grad and just received an offer in pain management. It'll be 5 days a week, no call, no holidays. The offer was $63,000. To me that seems very low. I'm not sure if they do this expecting you to negotiate higher? I really need and would like this job, but I feel it should start higher. Any suggestions on negotiation? Thank you!
  14. Hey everyone, I have just received an offer from a cardiology clinic in Chicago. I would mostly be seeing patients in the clinic but eventually would be running stress tests and rounding in the hospital. I would like some advice on their offer because I am a little wary on incentives and bonuses on top of a lower base salary. Here is their offer: -75K base salary -$2K discretionary bonus every quarter beginning in January ( I will start working october 3rd) All the benefits, vacation time and CME allowance are very good. I do not expect the practice to hold back any of my discretionary
