PAProdigy Posted September 25, 2013 Share Posted September 25, 2013 I'm a new grad who graduated within the last month so this will be my first job. Offer is for a pulmonary practice owned by the major academic hospital in the area. The group is pretty large with about 15 docs and 6 PAs. Position will involve staffing the medical ICU, post-op neurosurg ICU, and the their LTAC unit. The docs seem very willing to train as I am a new grad, they basically stated that it will be similar to a fellowship position. They have an extensive orientation schedule planned out where i will actually rotate with other services they frequently consult such as nephrology and cards so that I can get an idea of how the consultants work in the ICU. It all sounds pretty good to me. I have had other offers but Critical Care is what I have wanted to do for a long time. So is the actual offer sound for a new grad? Position is day shift 7am-5pm. 4 10hr days a wk One weekend a month no call, no nights Position located in PA, in a pretty PA saturated area Base salary: $78,000 Full health insurance with no premiums Vision and dental options with very low premiums 3 weeks paid vacation 48 hours paid holiday time (so i guess this is like extra vacation?) 1 weeks time for CME not taken out of vacation time I also accrue 1 sick day a month that is not taken out of any other vacation time CME Allowance of $2000 ( up to $1000 dollars will roll over each year if not used, I may also use up to $1500 a year out of my CME for purchasing electronic equipment/computer/journal subscriptions) Paid membership for one professional organization (not taken out of CME) All licensing and certification fees paid, they will even reimburse me for the money i spent on the pance and state license Full Malpractice/Tail covered Any thoughts would be really appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
