I recently interviewed with and was offered a part-time position with a private practice foot & ankle surgery group in Virginia. The job would be clinic only and no call. The exact schedule is to be determined at this point but I suspect somewhere close to 20 hours a week based on my availability likely to include some Saturdays. I have about 5 years of experience in general orthopedics, urgent care/occ health, and med/surg. This practice has not ever had a PA before but is very open to the idea and big on work/life balance. They essentially told me to take some time to write up my ideal hourly rate and benefits package and what I would want for a schedule. I haven't had much experience with part time compensation and benefits as I have only ever worked full time. What should I ask for? Do I need to adjust the benefits based on part time work? I want to make sure I set the bar high for any future PAs they work with but be reasonable at the same time. Here's what I'm thinking based on the 2015 AAPA regional and national salary reports (staying in the 50th-75th percentiles) and previous experience: $55/hr $2500 CME stipend, 40 hours CME PTO per calendar year Malpractice covered: occurrence or claims made with tail PTO (including vacation and sick time) 160 hours per calendar year (equivalent to 4 weeks) Maternity leave paid 12 weeks (though not sure how to calculate this for part time work. Based on 20 hour week? 40 hour week?) Bereavement paid 3 days NCCPA fees, State licensing , and DEA registration AAPA membership + 1 specialty membership Flexible spending account for healthcare (up to $2550) and daycare (up to $5k) Employer paid long term disability: 60% of income Employer paid life insurance: $50,000 Retirement: 3% of salary contributed to retirement by the employer regardless of employee contribution Crossfit gym membership (one of the partner docs owns a gym near me) (Don't need health insurance, got it through husband) Or should I just ask for a higher hourly rate with malpractice and tail and forgo the rest of the benefits? Did I miss anything important I should ask for? Thanks!
I am a family practice PA about to start negotiations with a joint replacement group in a large city in the southeast US. I have 3 years experience as a PA-C in family practice as well as previous athletic training experience (ATC). I really want to move into ortho for the long-term, and I think this might be a good practice to go with. They office manager has started the whole "be thinking about what you want in terms of compensation" discussion - so I've been thinking. Will you guys give me feedback on whether this sounds reasonable or not? - Mon-Fri, normal business hours, no rounding, minimal call, majority clinic with some first assist. - 95k base + % production payout quarterly (that's how it is structured, just not sure of what to ask for base) - 1500/year CME + 4-5 days CME - health/dental/vision - 401k - 15-20 days ETO/year + holidays - licensure/AAPA/certification fees covered by practice - malpractice covered by practice The last thing I want to do is scare them away. It is a respected practice that is actively expanding with low employee turnover. I just want to know if I'm on the right track. Thanks!
