  1. I am an experienced surgical PA and relocating to the southern NH area this summer. I have been looking for a Part-time (24hr/wk) surgical job. All the current job postings are full-time; Is anyone interested in job-sharing? or does anyone know of any part-time or per diem opportunities in this area? Has anyone successful set up a job share?
  2. Hello All, I am curious on people's opinions here especially from those who have done this before. I am currently AD military and am set to get out in two years. I will most likely be able to complete my bachelor degree within that timeframe, however I am only able to take one class at a time, and the education I have been receiving from the base education center (albeit from an accredited university) is lacking. Should I just finish out my degree while still active and apply for PA school, or should I take one or two full time semesters after I get out to better prepare/refresh myself on the more important topics (at the time I get out, it will be 4 years after I completed A&P). Any and all input is appreciated.
  3. 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!
  4. I'm an aspiring PA student. I'm interested in 20 hours per week or 20-30 hours per week in the future. How plentiful are part-time positions in general? Among specialties? I'm particularly interested in dermatology (cosmetic and medical) and in a major city like NYC. Among part-time positions, how common are they permanent vs. more temporary? Any experience and input would be appreciated.

Also, what does the capstone project in PA school usually consist of? Do we choose specific topics? If I want to go into dermatology, do we usually have the freedom to choose a topic like medical or cosmetic dermatology? Any experience and input would be appreciated.
  6. Hello all, I was recently accepted into PA school :):) and I am already thinking of possible paths to take once I finish school. I really like the idea of traveling all over the country as a practicing PA and gaining experience in a variety of settings. I've heard of a travel nurse and all of the benefits, but is there a such thing as a "travel PA"? I've done some research on this topic and I seem to come across "locum tenens" positions a lot, but is this similar to what a travel nurse does, in terms of working with traveling companies, having a lot of options and negotiation in the contracts, and receiving great benefits, etc.? Is it common for PAs to take only locum tenens positions as their full time source of income throughout the year? What are your thoughts? I honestly just want to learn more and I am open to ANY and ALL feedback! :)
  7. Any thoughts on this offer from private gastroenterology practice? $45/hr for 24 hours a week (weekdays) 1 in 5 weekends Two comp days after weekend. Option of working one "comp" day for $100/hr. No call No benefits other than malpractice and licensing fees 1-2 holidays per year. Paid $100/hr. Position will be a mix of clinic, inpatient and consults. Approx 2 patients an hour for clinic, 12 patient panel on the floor and amount of consults will vary. I will also be responsible for managing another PA's inbasket (lab results, imaging results etc). I have 6 years experience as a PA (in surgery, ED and family practice). I am currently working in a practice with a malignant practice manager and I am hoping to find a good alterantive. The hourly rate seemed a bit low, based on what I've been offered in the past and by the AAPA salary report. They are not negotiable with the rate because they state it would not be fair to the other PAs that work there. The practice manager there and physicians seem wonderful. Very eager to teach. Trying to weigh out the pros and cons.
  8. I really want to be a physician assistant and am currently going to school for it. I do not have kids now but would like to have kids when I'm 27-30. Family has always been an important aspect of my life. Would I have time to be in my children's lives as a PA? Would part-time still give me time with family as well as money to be sitting comfortably? (like 100k or close to a year).
  9. Halo~ everyone. It is my first time to use PA forum so I am not quite sure how this works.. but i will really appreciate if any one can tell me about my chances of getting Stanford PA program.

  10. I just moved to Charlotte from Dallas TX where I was a CT surgical PA for 4 years, proficient in hearts (EVH), vascular and lungs. I am a mom of 2 young boys, want to be home during the week while my husband works and wondering if anyone thinks there are opportunities to cover weekend call or 1 day/week still doing CT. I love hearts, and with young babies and a new place, would love to stay with the speciality and not have to jump into something brand new.
