  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 appreciate it.
  2. Hello, I'm currently searching for EMPA jobs in the Seattle area. Looking to move in late spring/early summer of 2021 for my boyfriend's job. I've completed a postgrad residency in emergency medicine in an inner city hospital in the midwest. Will have 2 years of experience by time of move, was also an EMT-B for 3 years prior to school. I was wondering if anyone had information on good hospitals/groups to look at or knows of any places hiring! Thanks! C. Bloom
  3. Can anyone tell me hourly rates for ER locums work, particularly for an experienced PA? I have been ER PA for 21 years, negotiating locums 1099 agreement. Current W2 rate is $80/hr Thx in advance for your reply
  4. Hello all, I was offered a full-time job in an emergency department in a low cost of living area and was looking for some thoughts on it. Overall I think it's a good offer being a new grad in a field that can be difficult to get into. Here's the details: Wage: 60/hr first year with $10/hr nighttime differential. Increases to $65/75 the 2nd year. 140 hrs/ month requirement. 1.5x pay for anything over 40 hours and holidays. 144hrs PTO - unused paid out at the end of each year. Additional 40hrs long-term sickness which accrues each year $2,500 CME.... I pay for licensing (plan to negotiate this out next contract) $2,500 upfront relocation reimbursement. Health, dental, vision, life insurance included 401k 50% match up to 6% Malpractice with tail First week of training is full pay, anything more is half pay at $30/hr (pretty strict with this unfortunately). Pretty pleased. They are offering up to 3 months of training but essentially whenever I feel ready. I don't have any other offers.
  5. Hi, So here's the story. I am beginning my first rotation and it is in the ED (no previous ED or UC experience). My preceptors are all very nice and willing to help, but I can't help but feeling like I am neither measuring up nor reflecting my program well. I wanted to get some feedback to gauge if this is a normal experience, as there are no other PA students at my site to compare notes with. I received an hour training on the EHR and beginning the second day was expected to see a few patients on my own and present them to my preceptor with assessment and plan. This wouldn't be a problem except that I am very slow in addition to having forgotten a lot of the medicine (I have a 3.8+ GPA from didactic year, but once I took the test most of the info seemed to blur into general confusion). I have no idea what to do with the mass of lab results from the current and previous ED encounters, nor sure that I've ruled out even 50% of the serious conditions. I am also very slow at charting (for reference, my program allowed multiple days to finish one entire SOAP or H&P note). I am also very poor at multi-tasking, which is an awful quality for the ED. I know I am trying and that I am reasonably intelligent, but this makes me think I should have stuck with some desk job rather than managing healthcare. For all of these reasons I can tell that I am a drain on the preceptors who are already busy. I get that I am here to learn from the preceptors, but can't help but feel that this is not how things should be. I do ask for feedback, but the preceptors are SO nice that I can't tell what they truly think. I'd appreciate any advice, what's normal, whats not, etc.
