Hello, I have been working in family med the past few months as a PA and am looking for opinions from switching from family to hospitalists. Things I dislike about Family med: following chronic diseases, convincing parents their kids aren’t sick arguing about antibiotic need, seeing the same patients over and over, and 15 minute time slots hospitalist positio : 7 on 7 off. 1230-330, no PTO, increase in pay, 15 patient bed, only only from 8-12 and call the hospitalist to discuss admissions what are opinions on switching jobs? Stress load of hospitalist position vs family med? thanks !!
I am a new grad as of August 2018 and have had no offers yet until now. This is a for a small family practice and with a MD who has never worked with a PA before. What they have offered to me I have heard of before. They are not offering a typical salary but instead are offering me 30% of insurance pay out for each patient I see and 30% of cash paid patients. No CME allowance, no health insurance. They are offering me malpractice with tail. Training will be $20 an hour until MD feels I am competent, then the 30% will become effective. They say that I will be working a minimum of 6 hours 4 days a week. Has anyone ever heard of this type of offer? I dont want to sell myself short, but I am in need of experience.
Hello, I’m currently a second-year PA student and I’m looking for some advice from people who have more experience than me. I graduate in May and this week I was talking to a health system that has openings in both urgent care and family med. Throughout my rotations I have enjoyed my experiences in both and I’m just wondering if anyone here has experience in either and would like to weigh in with their thoughts. I know personal preference plays a big role in this, but I’d love to get some information on the pros and cons of both areas. Thank you!
