  1. Hello, I'm a new grad PA (started the program right out of high school) who just received a job offer for a hospitalist position with the details here: 40 hour week. Five 8 hr shifts a week. Overnight from Sun- Thurs 11pm-7am. $85,000 base pay $15,000 for overnight annual bonus. Would be taken away if I switched to days. 4 weeks PTO 1 sick week 1 week CME and $1500 Paid DEA liscense.

  2. EM PA here, our group is looking to moving towards single doc/PA coverage overnight, whereas we previously ended shifts around 1am. For all those who work shift work/overnights, wondering 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 and what specialty. Thank you in advance!!!!
  3. Hello, I have been working in family med the past few months as a PA and am looking for opinions from switching from family med to hospitalists? what are opinions on switching jobs? Stress load of hospitalist position vs family med? thanks !!
  4. 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
  5. Hi- I currently work as a Hospitalist PA at an academic medical center. Wondering what schedule other PAs have for Hospital Medicine PAs. The two most common schedules that I have discovered include: 1) 7 on, 7 off 2) 12 or 13 12 hour shifts/month Any other models? What are your PTO benefits? Thanks!
  6. Hello I’m a PA with 11 years experience who has worked in hospitalists medicine for over 9, various places. I’ve been at the same low salary for the past 5 years. 105k 7 on 7 off capped at 8 admissions per day 3-11, no PTO no sick days (have to be made up).

  7. Hello! I am a PA located in Los Angeles, CA with a little over a year of outpatient primary care experience. I'm looking into transitioning out of primary care and into hospital medicine. I was offered an opportunity to join an internal medicine/nephrology group and start with hospital rounding 2 weekends/month covering 2-3 hospitals (average 10-20 patients). The pay would be $15 per Follow Up Visit and $25 per New Patient Consult or H & P. Is this fair pay for a PA with my experience/background? I currently get paid a base salary of 100K working 8 hours/day, 5 days/week, average
  8. I have ~5 years of experience. This offer is from a big hospital with a well integrated PA practice, in a moderate cost-of-living area. - Salary 125K. - 12 hour shifts with 1:3 weekends and 1:4 nights. Required to work 2 federal holidays per year. Shift differential amounts to ~5K per year by my calculation. - 403b with 2% match. - Pension (!) vested at 3 years of service. - Health insurance 80/20 until out of pocket max. Vision and dental through reimbursement account that is pretty generously funded, IMO. FSA and dependent care accounts available. - 22 da
  9. Hello, I recently graduated from a PA program and am wanting to work as a hospitalist PA. However, I am running into some obstacles and am hoping you all can give me some guidance. Here's the story: 1) I have no experience (many hospitals seem to prefer hiring acute care NPs, or they want at least a year of experience in INPATIENT medicine, so I can't even go work primary care for a year to get experience. Also I didn't do any elective rotations in hospitalist medicine because I didn't figure out that's what I wanted to do until after my electives were already chosen. I do try to pl
  10. Hi there, I was offered a Hospitalist position with a private medical group where I would work 5 days a week with rounding starting at 7 am and "leaving whenever I am finished with seeing my patients". I may leave early and finish charting at home as long as I am done seeing my patients. If I work weekends (average of 1-2 weekends per month), then I get two days off during the weekday. The hospital is a level 2 trauma teaching hospital. Compensation is 102k/year. The expected goal is to see an average of 20-25 patients per working day. Is that too much of a work load for an ~ 8 hour sh
  11. Hi everyone, I am starting my first job out of school in June. Seeing as though I graduated in December I am a bit worried over this large gap I will have from school and work. Further, I do not feel as though my IM rotation gave me an accurate taste of what work in IM will consist of. Can some of you guys suggest good reading for me to do over these next 2.5 months to best prepare me? Preferably books or video sources that go through the "bread and butter" of IM. Thanks a lot! Any other tips at all would be helpful
  12. Hi, I'm a pre-PA student and I'm trying to get an idea of the different specialties PA's operate in and find one that may peak my interest. Though PA school is still a ways away and choosing a specialty to begin with is even further, I want to begin at least learning the most popular specialties and what they do. One specialty I've seen a little bit of info about is hospitalist medicine. Technically speaking, I've seen it referred to as inpatient care. Now don't jump all over me saying I don't know what I'm talking about and that I should reconsider my career choice, because I don't know what
  13. Hi all, I'm a current student, and was just offered a position at a teaching institution in the midwest as a hospitalist PA. I hope to get some feedback from those of you who are more experienced than I. I think most of these offers I read about on the forum are great because they are all more money than I could have ever dreamed someone would pay me. I've outlined the major details of the position below. What am I forgetting to think about? Seems like a great package to me, but wanted to run it by some more eyes first. Schedule 7 days on/7 days off. No extra CME or personal PTO as I'
  14. Can anyone elaborate on the role of a Peds Hospitalist PA? What are their responsibilities? How is they pay and schedule? How many MDs do they typically work with? What is the typical pt population (diagnosis-wise)? Do they typically deal strictly with Gen Peds kids or pts from all specialties? I really love Peds Cardiology (there's something about those tiny HLHS kids that gets to me) but I don't really want to narrow my skills down so specifically in case I change my mind in 5 years. Plus I want to eventually work as a medical missionary so I want a broad base of knowledge, skills, and pract
  15. I'm a new PA grad with a couple of offers out there and I'm having trouble following my gut vs being realistic about the $100k in debt I've accumulated, and the Uncle Sam gravy train of student loans has long since dried up in my job hunt. The benefits between the two offers are very comparable in terms of health insurance, CME, PTO, 401k, moving expenses, etc. The first one is a hospitalist position, which is my dream job. Team seems awesome. They have a set 90 day training period with a list of topics to be covered and checked off on. I will be able to attend the resident conferences
