  1. Hello all Im a PA 5 years out at a private out of network ortho surgery practice. Ive been with the practice for 3 years and have been praise with my performance. Its 7 docs and 5 PA's so we are carrying a larger work load. I'm on call one weekday a week and one weekend a month. I feel that my compensation is lacking since the weekend Im on call included surgical cases, ER consults and floor consults. Us PA;s literally do what ortho residents would do. We have the most autonomy of any position I have come across. I am currently getting paid 140k with the full weekend of call and I
  2. i am coming up on contract negotiations. Most likely I plan on staying. I have been here for 5 years and really like it, mainly because of who I work for/with. Something that would help me progress financially would be paying down student loans. I am already at a high salary and get some bonuses. The only thing I could think of that would improve the money situation would be some sort of loan repayment. Ideally, tax free for me and clinic, money goes directly to loan, lowers principle and overall cost of loan, and I still write off loan interest. I do understand there are some tax codes agains
  3. I graduated 2 years ago. I have been working for close to 2 years in an STD clinic. Originally my goal was to get my loans paid and get a part time to keep refreshing my knowledge. However the part time did not happen. Someone close in my family had medical issues and that got me busy with family affairs for close to a year. Now that my contract with NHSC is about to expire I don’t know how to take the next step. I am very intimidated by what would be expected from me at the next job. Many people in this forum talk about how they know as much as doctors do, and I wonder where did they
  4. Hey guys! I'm looking for some feedback. I recently received an offer at an Orthopedic practice in Florida which I would like to counter but as this is my first time negotiating I want to make sure I am asking a reasonable counter offer. I have 2 years experience working a combination of ortho/neuro/general surgery/internal medicine floor work (no OR) at a hospital and I did an orthopedic elective rotation in school. The job would be Monday through Friday, hours varying depending on the day but generally ending clinic by 5 or 6 pm. No weekends, no holidays, no night call. I would first ass
  5. I am a PA working for a large hospital system...when hired about a year and a half ago, I was employed by the hospital and was not given a contract. Instead, I was given an "offer letter" which stated a basic job description, but did not give much detail, nor did it describe how salary increases would come about. I was told I would receive "pay for performance" increases, which basically amounts to a cost of living increase (when the system can afford it) when certain system-wide metrics are at or above goal. In reality, the salary adjustment has little to do with my own performance, but ra
  6. So I signed a 1 yr contract last January, new job. As my private practice was contemplating merging with our hospital we did NOT do a renewal contract & then we did not merge. Thus when I asked my practice manager about my contract recently, she said oh, that just continues! Really? So does anyone out there agree with me? That no, I'm not under any contract! Or are they correct? Is it normal to re-negotiate annually? Or is this my employers way of not giving out raises?! Signed "contract h/a"!
