Here are the details of my offer. There really wasn’t much to it and I have no idea where to start with negotiations and what I need to bring up. My concern is that the salary is a little on the low side. Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated!
24 days PTO
5 days CME
My SP is retiring and selling his FM practice. I am looking for advice on salary negotiation with the new supervising physician.
The new SP has big aspirations for the practice and plans to add many updates which is exciting but it appears that it will also come with quite the workload increase.
I suspect that we will be marketing the practice more which means more patients. (I currently average 15 per day)
He wants me to credential at the local hospital and round on our patients in the morning if they were admitted to the hospital in the morning prior to seeing patients at clinic.
He also wants me to begin taking call (one weekend a month) at the local hospital.
We may also round at the local Nursing Homes one day a week
Current Base: 90k. No Production bonuses
With the added workload that will be expected, any advice on if I should ask for a raise vs productivity bonus?
Hello I’m a PA with 11 years experience who has worked in hospitalists medicine for over 9, various places. I’ve been at the same low salary for the past 5 years. 105k 7 on 7 off capped at 8 admissions per day 3-11, no PTO no sick days (have to be made up). I had a talk with them and as a result Ive been offered 125k with quarterly bonuses with an increase in patients. 2500 cme with licenses and fees to come out of the 2500
Pros: Fully Autonomous, flexible on start time, good rapport with boss. Typically done with my cap in 7hrs per day. Essentially working 56 hrs every two weeks, making the hourly rate pretty good. Possibly able to still complete a shift in 9hrs with new cap proposal.
Cons: Poor communication in the office. Sometimes travel between two facilities
I reached out to another hospital system in town and the local competition is willing to pay 128k base with 10k bonus divided quarterly. 2500 cme and pay for licensing and fees. Shift will be ten hrs. 2-midnight. No cap on admissions however told typically 6-7 admissions per night
Pros. No travel required,
Cons: no access to doc lounge (wth!), likely present every patient to supervising doc, don’t eat free with exception of “doc area” buffet that closes at the start of my shift. Longer shifts.
My question is are these competitive numbers for the year we are in and also which seems to be the better option?
Has anyone been able to work without a DEA license? I have voluntarily surrendered mine for a year, due to working for two physicians who were overprescribing and having me prescribe while they were out of the office (I 100% own up to my fault in the situation, and hope I never have to write for another narcotic again).
I am very concerned I won’t be able to get another job for a year or so. I’m hoping someone has had a similar experience and can tell me how it worked out or what types of groups would still hire. Any info would help. Thanks in advance.
I wanted to share a conference that I'm helping plan in January 2020: Pediatric Sports Medicine Conference: Managing Pain in Your Young Athletes After Injuries. I attended last year and really enjoyed the content. It sold out last year, so if you're interested in attending, be sure to register before the end of Dec.
UCSF Benioff Sports Medicine faculty will present evidence-based management of acute and chronic pain, including the roles of ice, splints and braces, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and physical therapy.
By the end of this conference, participants will be able to:
Recognize the early signs and symptoms of pain amplification syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome that could occur after injury
Apply appropriate pain management strategies for young athletes, including ice and other modalities, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy, and physical therapy
Discuss the red ‑ flags of pediatric musculoskeletal injuries, including when to get X-rays and when to refer
Describe the proper prescription and fitting of upper- and lower extremity splints, including their duration of use depending on injury diagnosis
Explain the steps needed for proper evaluation and management of concussions to avoid persistent post-concussion symptoms, including chronic headache pain
Identify rheumatological causes of joint and back pain in pediatric patients
