  1. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT, ME, and/or MA Thank you in advance!!
  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. Hi, Trying to get some information regarding critical care PA compensation in order to present a reasonable salary and raise structure to our group with an increasing number of PAs. - Currently we work day shifts only, 8am-8pm - around 2 weekends per month, no extra pay - holidays as scheduled, no extra pay - Good health, dental, 401k - start at 1wk vacation per year, increases yearly by a week up to 4wks per year - 8 hours sick leave per month - $1000 CME, but no extra CME time off - they pay for all licensing, DEA, etc. We currently get paid per shift, our contract states 163 shifts per year, but if we work more than that we get paid the per shift rate (nothing extra for more than 3 shifts per week/ more than 40 hours per week) So: What are people seeing as starting salary for new grads in critical care and what are shifts per week to be considered full time? What are average annual raises/ cost of living raises/ salary increases with years of experience? Do people generally get extra pay for more than three 12 hour shifts per week? Differential for weekends or holidays? Bonuses? If so, what are they based on and how much are they? I have 8 years experience in critical care. Anymore with similar years of experience, what is your pay/salary? what is your average patient load for a 12 hour shift? Thanks so much for any help you all can give!
  4. If this has already been asked, I apologize. I could not find a thorough post. Any recommendations/advice/comments (good or bad) would be really appreciated! Does anyone have any advice on an ICU clinical rotation? Or advice on working as a PA in ICU/critical care? Any recommendation on books/resources to use as a student on rotation? Any current or previous ICU/critical care PA: is it difficult to find a job in ICU/critical care? Is a fellowship recommended or required?
  5. Hey everyone!! Hoping to get some insight on my offer for a position at a Level II trauma center in SoCal. I worked with this group of surgeons as a student so I know it would be an excellent learning environment and tons of good exposure. My time will be split weekly, working in trauma + gen surgery one week and strictly in ICU the next. Training will include running traumas, first assist, various procedures, ICU and vent management, etc. No surgery residents. They currently have 3 NPs and 1 PA and are looking to expand. Base salary at $110k. Hours/call: 40hr/week, leaving promptly at end of shift. No overnight shifts as new grad until myself and SP are comfortable. Contract states that call will be paid "standard on call fees" but does not state exact amount. They did stress that being on call is not likely, esp as a new grad. Benefits: Health insurance, they pay 90% of standard costs. Have to pay for my own dental and vision. ( is this normal?) Malpractice insurance covered- will be sure to ask about tail coverage. Not eligible for 401k plan until 1 full year of employment!! Seems a little odd to me, thoughts? PTO: "employee shall accrue 0.05 hours of PTO for every 1 hour of work performed" which if my math is correct comes out to about 10 days of PTO -_- hoping this is a typo because that's extremely low. The APPs currently work 4 10s a week but will likely move to 3 12s as more APPs are hired so I am not sure how this affects the amount of PTO. I am thinking of asking for 4 weeks PTO to include vacation, sick and CME days. CME: $1500, does not state specific number of days off Overall, I am really happy with the offer as a trauma position has been my dream for a long time! Not so happy with the PTO, but believe they will be willing to work with me! I would greatly appreciate your thoughts!
  6. Hi everyone, If anyone is interested in a great critical care job in Southern Oregon, please take a look at the job posting section. We are looking for a PA or NP with critical care experience. The hours are good and there are lots of opportunities to do procedures. I've been here > 9 years and can vouch for it being a good place to work. The pay potential is very good as well. Check out the job posting section on the forum if you are interested! Best regards, JCRITCAREPAC
  7. Any help would be great! Looking to start a new position in the ICU. Currently with 2 years of experience (non ICU) and am trying to get an idea of salary range. Anyone have any applicable anecdotes/offers they've gotten? Thanks!
  8. Hello Everyone, I work as a critical care PA in Oregon and my group is looking to hire two experienced PAs or NPs to join our team of eight intensivists and two PAs/NPs. We cover medical ICU patients and also consult on cardiothoracic, trauma, and neuro critical care patients. The details are still in the preliminary stages but should be a full time swing or nocturnist position with an average of 80 hours per two week pay period. The PA/NP will work alongside a critical care physician. Duties will include procedures such as central line, arterial lines, chest tubes, etc. A competitive base salary plus bonus, as well as full benefits, paid vacation, paid CME would be offered. The start date has not been finalized but should be later in 2017. Please contact me if you would like further information.
  9. Does anyone know if any hospitals in Miami, Fl. hire PA's for their critical care units? Or in South Florida? Any experienced ICU PA's there or elsewhere find they are satisfied with their positions in the ICU (allowed to do procedures/ sufficient amount of autonomy/ used appropriately in the team model / happy with pay, etc)? Looking to gain more knowledge about PA's in the ICU/critical care field, any info is much appreciated! Thanks :)
  10. Announcing the UPMC Critical Care Medicine Advanced Practice Provider Postgraduate Residency program based on the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital medical campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Acute care medicine fields such as critical care medicine are fast-paced, challenging and require motivated and dedicated individuals but also require a knowledgebase and skill set difficult to obtain quickly or effectively in a traditional on-boarding phase. This program was initially born out of a need to train advanced practice providers how to deliver ICU care in the numerous ICUs throughout our facilities and ultimately for hospitals nationwide. We began developing our program in 2011 and are currently training our second class. Residents undergo an intense training for 12 months alongside our physician fellows in the Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program, rotate through approximately 7 specialty ICUs, and attend daily conferences, labs, and simulations pertinent to the care of surgical and medical ICU patients. Elective rotations are offered. Our residents are provided with a stipend for their year of training as well as a full benefit package including educational allowance. We are now opening a new application cycle for a start date at the beginning of July 2014. Please see the following website for further details as well as our online application. http://ccm.pitt.edu/upmc-critical-care-medicine-advanced-practice-provider-residency
