  1. Was hoping to get some opinions on an offer before I accept, this is my first contract as a new grad! Position is a fellowship located in New York, level III trauma center seeing 70K patients a year. First 12 months a physician will always also see your patients, with review to determine if you can begin seeing level 4/5 independently for the last 6 months. Not the greatest area but that means a very diverse patient population. There is NO residency program, so the PA fellows have first dibs at procedures and other opportunities if they want to learn them. Lead PA has been there 10+ years which tells me something, and says PAs get a very high level of autonomy in this ED with great physician support. 18 month contract (can sever with 120 days' notice) Full time hourly at $40.95/hr (+$5/hr night differential). 36 hours/week at 12-hour shifts rotating between observation, fast track and main ED. 5 hours/week didactic education. Opportunities to pick up additional shifts at 1.5x base. (Based on scheduling preferences/OT, anywhere between 88-100K/year) Full medical/dental/vision/disability benefits (Was told you don't get benefits summary until after you sign, is this standard? I find this strange and need to clarify) 401K match (need to obtain details) Malpractice + tail Full reimbursement for license/DEA $1,500 CME allowance/year NO PTO except as required by state law (was told they work with your requests and are able to schedule you early one week/late next to gain 7-8 days off for vacation though) 5K completion bonus at end of term, additional 5K retention bonus if you accept a position there at the end of the fellowship ACLS, ATLS, PALS, emergency ultrasound and emergency airway training provided Seems like a great opportunity as a fellowship to get my foot in the door of EM (have spent 5 months applying for EM positions in various states across the country with no bites, and I've been an EMT 8 years). Thanks in advance!
  2. I'm a new grad PA on the job hunt. I've been applying to everything but I really want to work in the ED, inpatient hospitalist, or in an urgent care. I've applied to countless job postings (over 120) with only a couple phone interviews, but nothing has really panned out. I'm also willing to relocate and have passed my boards. It seems like those specialties aren't hiring new grads right now which is frustrating. I just recently received an offer from an addiction medicine clinic I interviewed at. They're offering 85k until I'm credentialed then 105k. They have an RVU bonus up to 35k per year. Malpractice and medical insurance are covered with 401K matching and 3 weeks PTO for the first year then 5 weeks after. The clinic is great, the providers truly care about their patients. It's not just a methadone clinic, they have group therapy, psychologists, social workers, and coaches for their patients. In addition, everybody there seems to truly care about what they do. My only apprehension with accepting this offer is that I'll get stuck in addiction medicine/behavioral health. It's easy to get pigeon-holed and lose a lot of your general clinic knowledge working in behavioral health. I'm worried I won't be able to transition to working in the ED which is what I truly desire. So my question is, does anyone have insight or transition from addiction medicine/behavioral health to another specialty, such as family med, hospital med, GI, etc...? Should I reject the offer and wait it out until I get a position in a medical specialty?
  3. Hi everyone, this is a new forum for new application 2019-2020. Good luck to everyone and may God bless every step in your future.
  4. So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future? (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?) Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello fellow colleagues! I am a new grad PA and I need your help. I got a job offer at an urgent care but I'm unsure if I want to accept it. I am in SoCal. 2 weeks training. The UC sees 20-30 patients at one location while 35-50 at another. Base pay: 55+ (no bonuses) malpractice with tail NO CME and PTO Have yet to talk about health insurance and retirement. It's 1099 NOT W-2
  6. Hi All! I am about to graduate from PA school this fall, and have begun looking into the licensing process. I plan to practice in the DC metro area (DC, MD, VA), and was wondering whether any folks living in/around DC have advice about licensing in the DC metro area? In particular, has anyone heard whether there is reciprocity between any of the states in the DC metro area? I'm planning to begin the licensing process for all three states, but to ultimately only submit my licensing application for the specific state in which I get a job. I'd really appreciate any insight you have about licensing/jobs in general in the DC Metro area! Thanks! Joanna
