Hi everyone, I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program. When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know. Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted? Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks? Thanks!
Hi everyone, I'm in need of some advice. I'm a hospital physician assistant who gets paid for my 37.5 hours per week. I've been working at this hospital for 5 years, working four 10 hour shifts as well as providing on call coverage (over the phone, never have to come in to the hospital) for the neurology department at my hospital (which is actually an outpatient practice of 10 neurologists). The PAs cover 4 calls per month, each call is 14 hours of coverage. We cover inpatient as well as outpatient calls which can be anywhere from 15 to 40+ calls per night. We are not compensated for these extra hours that we spend speaking to the ER, RNs, outpatients, etc on the phone. Our base salary definitely does not cover these calls because our salary is under 90k in 2016 in NJ where the average is closer to 102k+ at this time. The calls have progressively been getting worse and because we don't get post-call days off, we have not been sleeping at night and then going in to work at the hospital for 10 hours. It is affecting our quality of life and so we finally set up an appointment to meet with the medical director. Does any one have experience with on call compensation similar to this? How much compensation should we ask for? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
