Switching from Fam Practice to Ortho


Recommended Posts

I am a PA-C, ATC planning on switching from FP to ortho soon.

I have been working as a PA in a non-profit family practice clinic treating patients without insurance for 2.5 years. After learning a LOT at my current position, I am ready to move on to my first love, orthopedic surgery. I currently have a couple of interviews lined up, and I haven't thought about money in a couple of years. I want to make sure I'm starting out in the appropriate salary range and not selling myself short. Thoughts?

full benefits, at least 2 weeks vacation and 90k base. they usually throw in production  bonus as well

Thanks! That is around the base salary I was thinking. I feel like it's reasonable to ask for malpractice, CME, professional fees, etc. as well. I live in the SE US in an area that is pretty well saturated with medical providers and med schools, etc so I'm afraid I won't get 90k. I guess there is no hurt in asking! (If they don't offer first of course.)

      Hello,
      I'm a new grad PA (started the program right out of high school) who just received a job offer for a hospitalist position with the details here:
      40 hour week. Five 8 hr shifts a week. Overnight from Sun- Thurs 11pm-7am.   $85,000 base pay $15,000 for overnight annual bonus. Would be taken away if I switched to days.   4 weeks PTO 1 sick week 1 week CME and $1500 Paid DEA liscense.  
       
      I'm curious if I should ask for more base pay.  Any opinions?  Thanks!

      Hi all. Our EM practice is in the works of developing a head PA/NP position (manager in a sense). Currently we have a liaison who is a physician-but the physician wants to turn it over to the APPs. Since this is a new trial process for our group, I wanted to reach out and see what the job description and stipend/benefits your group gives to the PA/NP who is essentially "in charge" of the APPs at your practice. If you could tell me the type of practice you work in, location (state), job description for head APP (rough expectations), and stipend/benefits for that position I would greatly appreciate it.

      Back in March, as hospitals across the country shut down electives and we were being furloughed left, right, and center, I was very concerned that the “temporary” pay and benefits cuts would prove permanent.
      At my institution we took hours reduction in addition to pay cuts, our 403b match was halted, and PTO was frozen. In July our pay and hours were reinstated. We were permitted PTO accrual and use in August. In September our 403b match comes back.
      I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. How is everyone else doing now?

      Hello,
       
      I am looking for advice on salary for a Pa-C position in charge on a 16 bed Detox wing. I would be responsible for supervising a nurse and a CNA. Also, I would have to work some weekend, nights and some holidays.
      1. What would be a good salary range for this dual medical / management role? 
       
      2. The job only provides 16 days of ( lumping it all together) PTO, sick and national holiday and CME days off.  Should I ask for a higher compensation for this limited vacation package? 
       
      thank you in advance!

      EM PA here, our group is looking to moving towards single doc/PA coverage overnight, whereas we previously ended shifts around 1am. For all those who work shift work/overnights, wondering if you receive an overnight differential pay bump. If so, what is it? If you're more comfortable contacting me directly would be GREAT help or answer the attached poll. Attempting to get some data together to show higher ups its common for overnight diff in EM world. Also please include what state you work in and what specialty.
       
      Thank you in advance!!!!
