The last poll in Jan 2017 had 215 responses. Time for round 2. Votes are anonymous. Select your GROSS (before taxes and other deductions) income which includes your base pay plus bonuses. Again, this is as informal as it gets. We all know years in practice and location play a huge impact on these numbers. ***EDIT: I edited the poll in order to add more options at the top end. As of writing this, there were 3 people who selected " >$180k" which is now the option "$180k-190k"
I am a new grad (soon, at least) gearing up to apply for my first job. I'm open to working in a variety of settings, but I've received some worrisome advice from a friend: "Make sure you don't accept a job with a lower pay, not because you desperately need the extra income, but because you set the bar for income level at all future jobs." How true is this advice with regards to the PA profession? I was told that prospective employers frequently call previous employers to find out their salary. And because of this, employers tend to "low ball" these applicants and view them as less deserving of a higher salary than others with previously higher incomes. While I can see how this could be true for other professions with more flexible requirements and employment history, I'm wondering if this applies to PAs. I'm wondering especially with providers who switch from clinic to surgery or vice versa. This seems more apples to oranges than clinic to clinic or surgery to surgery, where the comparison might be clearer. I'm curious what everyone thinks.
Hello, I am a relatively new PA in the area of neurology, having graduated from Midwestern Chicago in 2012. My knowledge of legal boundaries of a PA in colorado (and in general) have been somewhat limited based on my being the first PA in my private practice. I have a specific question and was hoping you can steer me in the right direction. There is a Primary care office in our area who recruits specialists (e.g. endocrinologists, neurologists) to provide a "curbside" type consult for cases remotely. They will have specialists review charts and give recommendations for these patients on a fee for service basis. My question is simple. Can Physician Assistants provide this kind of service from a legal standpoint, if I have a supervising physician sign off on my work? I have a very specific niche in headache (though I do see general neurology patients), and this specific field could be a useful tool to provide additional stream of income. This practice would use a secure server to allow me to review the charts of the patients, read over their history medications, etc... and provide recommendations for treatment of their headache syndromes (or, in theory, other neurologic disorders). This is without seeing the patient at all. I would charge a flat fee for providing this service, and my supervising physician in my office would sign off on my work. Is this possible, and who could I talk to more about this from a logistical standpoint? Thank you for your time. Jordan
