  1. Hi Everyone! New grad currently negotiating part-time PA position in Family Practice. I've done clinical rotations and scribed at a Family Practice office in NYC and will be working part-time until I start a Residency program in the fall. Trying to figure out what I should expect in a part-time contract if anything in terms of benefits, PTO, CME, etc. Also, trying to discern if it is in my best interest to be a part-time employee or 1099. Thanks in advance!
  2. Does anyone understand the over time law in California for part time work. I work part time but 2 days a week work 9-10 hours but I do not get over time. Thanks for any help.
  3. Hi everyone! 3 years in Derm. Right now : 1. Part time pay $57.50 an hour no benefits except 401k he’s putting in 3%. Only PA in solo practice. One time bonus in December of $1,500. Pays for all CME activities no cap, but does not pay accommodations or other expenses. 2. Work 20-25 hours a week. I tally about 60 patients a week and sometimes less. 3. I Do some cosmetics 4. I was offered productivity based salary at first, had no Derm experience but I declined because I was brand new to practice. Worked IM 3 years before starting. offered same base salary : part time hourly $57.50 productivity: net Collections first year 3%, 2nd year 4% and 3rd year 5% above 200k. Reports quarterly but collected and calculated from Whole practice 30% in cosmetic procedures Same benefits as above Any thoughts?
  4. Any input would be appreciated, I have 3 years of experience as a PA practicing full time in NYC. I am now looking to leave my full time position in FM for a part time position (I recently had a baby and want to spend more time at home). I have never worked a part time position before and what to get an idea of what other PAs are recieving so that I'm better prepared for my job search. 1) salary. I understand it varies but is $65/hour reasonable? 2) health insurance . Do part time employees usually receive coverage? 3) if health insurance is offered is it fair to ask for more compensation in lieu of it? (We are on my husband's plan anyway) 4) How Much PTO does a part time PA usually receive? Sick days? Holidays? 5) is it fair to ask for CME reimbursement and/or PTO for CME? 6) licensing and credentialing fee reimbursement ? Thank you so much!
  5. So I'm in my 30s and I have children. How much can they work with you to find a schedule that works for you? Could I, say, do rotations most days so that it's between 8-4? Is this out of the question with some late nights thrown in? My dream really is to be a PA or an MD. Because of the brutal residency that MDs have to do, I decided with kids that wasn't the avenue I should take. I feel for me it would be too much time away from home. Someone said that PAs don't have to do same kind of 24 + hour long rotations, but I just read they do. What is accurate and do we have to do very long rotations? I'm so torn here. Thanks
  6. Hello. I live in Western North Carolina and am considering a PT (24/wk - 4 days per week) job offer from a local community health center. The rate offered is $59/hr, no benefits, no PTO, no CME, no paid holidays vs $48 / hr w/$1000 CME, 13 PTO, paid holidays and no other benefits. I believe a fair rate is $65/hr w/$1000 CME, at least 10 PTO, and any holidays should be paid at $100/hr. I bring 9 years of experience, the field of medicine for this position is primary care. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Hello there. I am starting this thread to begin a discussion regarding PAs that work, not only in the pharmaceutical industry, but in other areas of business. I currently work as a Neurology PA in a small private practice in Denver and have been doing so for about 3 years. I love what I do, but I can't help but feel limited in my ability to work TOWARDS something bigger and better. I am not saying that I am not happy where I am, but am curious at what others have done, potentially on the side, to help with ancillary income or to help grow themselves as professionals in a variety of different way. This topic came to light recently when I was talking to a Medical Science Liaison for a large and well-respected pharmaceutical company. She had recently been promoted within her company, and asked me if I would ever be interested in such a career. She had a background in medicine but seemed VERY happy with her choice. Further research did show me that there was a much higher pay rate (though this is not my ONLY motivation) as well as offering a chance to work your way up in a large company. I feel like I have untapped resources at my disposal (my ability to work as a team towards a goal; organization; leadership, etc...) that I am not fully utilizing. I'm curious as to what others think about branching out in this way. If you work part time as a PA (or have stopped clinical practice all together) what are you doing with your degree and experience in medicine. I am someone that likes to work towards something at any given time. I know I still have a lot to learn in medicine, but I also want to expand my horizons from a business standpoint as well. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you for your input. Jordan
  8. Hi : D So I am an undergraduate student, quite certain I want to work in primary care, specifically family medicine...but I am debating that old question, P.A. vs. D.O. (If I did go to med school it would be an osteopathic school because i like the osteopathic philosophy). So my question is: - Are there many part time opportunities for P.A.s in family medicine/other primary care? How does working part time as a doctor vs. part time as a P.A. compare? - How is it being a P.A. in NJ or P.A. (the state)? Like how much autonomy/respect do they have in comparison to other places... -Is it just me, or are primary care P.A.s happier in general with their jobs than surgical/ Emed P.A.s? (I've been hanging arounf the forums for a bit now...)
