  1. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT,

    Urgent Care

    Would like to hear about the experience of PAs in Urgent Care facilities (hours, patients/day, work-life balance, etc.). I haven't seen any forums addressing this care setting. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi All! Looking for some thoughts on an urgent care offer in northern NJ. Multi specialty practice based urgent care. Mix of acuity. We can get stat CTs. $64/hr = 133120 per year Hourly not salary 160 hours PTO 0 hours CME days $1500 CME Mix between 12hr (week day 8A-8P) and 9hr (8A-5P) shifts 4% match 401k 5% annual bonus Approx 20-30 patient's per day I have 5 years experience as a PA Thanks in advance! ~E
  5. Hey folks, I've been working in emergency medicine for about 1 year in a setting with a good mixture of high acuity and fastrack patients at a teaching institution. I've also worked during this time per diem at a low volume urgent care. While this has been an outstanding first job in terms of resume building and learning, it of course has the downside of wild hours, nights, weekends, holidays, etc. at a rather noncompetitive hourly rate/salary. I don't hate the job, but I also don't see myself doing emergency medicine forever. Or at least...not at this salary. For those who started i
  6. Anyone that can help with compensation recommendations or salary range for Urgent Care Position. Looking in southern Maine. Expecting 1 or 2 offers from two different companies. I have 3 years of experience at a high volume/high acuity urgent care. Currently making 60$ an hour at a UC that keeps multiple providers on. In this new position I would be solo provider with MD or other PA available by phone for consultation when needed. AAPA salary report didn't have any data for UCs in Maine. I would like to make as much as a lateral move as possible as this would be a move to a higher cost of livi

    Anybody know what the average salary/hourly wage is for urgent care work in Ohio? Is the data on Zip Recruiter reliable?
  8. Anyone have an idea of the average urgent care salary/hourly wage in Ohio or surrounding areas? Is Zip Recruiter accurate?
  9. New grad here currently considering taking my first job at an urgent care clinic. The goal is for me to act as a solo provider at a new rural location to be opened in the coming months (with an off-site supervising physician.. the specifics of who I should contact depending on when a question/concern comes up are to be discussed and I plan to have them included in my contract in writing.) It has already been discussed that I would have at least 4 weeks of one-on-one training with a supervising physician at the existing clinic, where there are always at least two providers working, before begin
  10. I am currently still in my clinical year--I have 2 rotations still left to complete. This is the second job offer I've received. My first offer was from a local ED, which I declined because 1. It was my first offer, and from this forum I've learned that you probably shouldn't just jump on the first offer that you see 2. Before PA school, I worked as an ED tech working the 1400-0230 shift--and back then it was just my wife and I, and since then we've added 2 little girls to our family--and I just don't think I want to take on the ED hours, stress, etc 3. I ran my offer by a few different PAs th
  11. What? Per diem job opportunity described as easy, straight-forward, laidback, fun with good pay. Expect low-acuity urgent care cases. Where? Manhattan When? Various open shifts throughout September and upcoming months w/ a particular need for weekend coverage Full-time Sept 27-Oct 12 How? If you have any questions, message me directly. If you have interest, please email your resume to alexandrajscialdone@gmail.com.
  12. I just switched into Urgent Care. I have 1 year of hospital medicine under my belt. I find myself getting stumped on some occasions, simply because I would treat the issue differently inpatient. Since I am feeling the learning curve, I am interested in what resources (books, journals, sites, etc.) my fellow PAs in UC use on a daily basis? All suggestions are helpful! Thanks in advance ?
  13. Okay. So I have been having trouble finding a job out of PA school. I graduated in December. I applied to a few residencies and fellowships and made it to the final round of one of the residencies but ultimately was not chosen. (This process took 2.5 months of my life= 1.5 months waiting for the interview and 1 month waiting for the results). So now I am 7 months out of school and without a job. The biggest problem is that I struggle with confidence. I did very well on all my tests in school but I feel like 2 years in school wasn't enough for me to be ready to practice medicine. Unfortuna
  14. Hi all, I am a new grad PA-C in MI and just received an Urgent Care offer at the first clinic I interviewed with. Seems to not be great, but not bad and I’d appreciate any feedback you have for me moving forward! First off, I interviewed yesterday and received the offer today. $45 per hour was offered and I countered with $50. We settled on $47. Pay: $47 per hour, shifts are usually 3 12’s, holiday and OT pay is time and a half. Possibility of bonuses dependent on revenue were mentioned. Ability to pick up shifts at sister locations. (OT wouldn’t kick in if time was split between l
  15. I live in the capital region (Albany) and I am now seeing advertisements for Five Star Urgent Care opening in the area. I see the salary being offered at >$150k with experience. I am an experienced emergency medicine, urgent care and interventional radiology PA who is open to a good opportunity if it comes along. This almost sounds too good to be true and wonder what the expected patient load is, benefits, PTO, etc. Does anyone on here work for them (they are all over western NY) or know about the company? Thanks in advance for any help. Dave
  16. Looking for a thumbs up/down opinion on a recent offer I received. I'll try and keep it short. My wife and I are moving back to the Southeast soon, hence the job search. I'm 4 years out of PA school. Spent 2 years in urgent care, and last 2 in neurosurgery. And I'm very much the "work to live" type. Don't mind working hard, but cherish home/family time too, thus not staying in NSGY at a level 1 trauma center. Location: Urgent Care on steroids: basics + onsite XR, CT, MRI, U/S, full lab. Manage some occasional high acuity stuff (they've done chest tubes, mild sedation, intubate, etc.). (
  17. Hey there, I have been working in an Urgent Care clinic for 2 months now as a PA-C. Just wanted to share my experiences getting started in the field for those interested. Check out my post below: What It's Like to Work as a New Grad PA
  18. Hello folks, I'm currently a PA-S graduating in a few months. I'm posting in the general discussion since I wanted to get opinions from PA-C's, particularly w/ urgent care experience. I've applied for a number of EM jobs, and am in the process of applying to urgent care positions as well. I've decided work life balance is very important to me, and Urgent Care seems to fit the bill from what I've seen. My question is, do you guys think Urgent Care is an appropriate field for a new graduate? I will have had 2 rotations in EM by that point, and will not be solo at any of the UC loca
  19. What the typical pay rate per hour or salary for experienced Urgent Care PA in NYC full time. See about 3-4 patients per hour. Established company. Can anyone help?
  20. Hello, I’m currently a second-year PA student and I’m looking for some advice from people who have more experience than me. I graduate in May and this week I was talking to a health system that has openings in both urgent care and family med. Throughout my rotations I have enjoyed my experiences in both and I’m just wondering if anyone here has experience in either and would like to weigh in with their thoughts. I know personal preference plays a big role in this, but I’d love to get some information on the pros and cons of both areas. Thank you!
  21. Wondering what the opinions of experienced providers are on the pros/cons of a new graduate taking a job in urgent care vs emergency medicine. Anyone care to share their thoughts? Feedback greatly appreciated.
  22. What is the going hourly rate for a PRN urgent care position with a large academic hospital system? I'd be doing 40% urgent care complaints and 60% occupational med stuff. Located in a large Midwest city, employed by hospital (not IC), no benefits (strictly PRN). There will usually be an MD on site during the day, but for the evening shifts it is almost always an NP and/or PA closing the clinic alone. I have approx 1 year experience in general practice.
  23. Hello- I will be moving to Boston, MA with my SO who will be a fellow at Brigham & Womens Hospital next June. I am currently practicing in Urgent Care in Pennsylvania. I have a little over 1 year experience with a company I love, this was my first job out after graduation. At the time of the official move in June 2017 I will have 2 year of UC experience. This being my first PA job, I have no experience with relocation (new state license, when to start searching for a job, headhunters, etc). I had planned to start looking in October - is this too soon? When should I get my MA state lic
  24. Hi I just wanted to know if anyone made the switch from primary care to urgent care and what their experience was. Im interested in the position because it would be nice to work 3 12 hour shifts (weekends and nights dont bother me) but im afraid i might miss managing chronic illness. Did you feel taken advantage of as a PA? Thanks!
  25. Large teaching hospital: - 83,000 - Full benefits - 40 hours per week in 12 or 8 hr shifts - Every other weekend - Malpractice & tail covered - $5,000 scorecard bonus (average amount received $3,700). - I would be the sole provider in some clinics after my short (3 week ish) training period. Likely only the slow clinics that see ~12-15 pts per day.They placed a strong emphasis on me being independent quickly. - 24 days PTO/year - $2,500 CME + 5 paid days. - Site has UpToDate, etc. - no 401k match but does offer pension plan after 5 years. I'm so torn. This job offer is with
