Ortho Trauma Job Offer - Advice?

Recommended Posts

Received an informal job offer from an estalished ortho trauma group in the West. The salary has not yet been discussed nor has a contract been presented. I am currently a student and rotated with this group. I don't know how ortho trauma pay compares to general ortho. Any advice/opinions regarding salary and/or the benefits below? Is there anything else I should be sure to ask or negotiate?


-Will work with the new surgeon; will start ASAP after licensure

-Time split between OR & clinic; assist other surgeons in practice when coverage is needed (a couple cases per month, if that); can take vacation when surgeon does or opt to work short days (negotiable)

-Will be working at a newer trauma center and new office

-Duties (negotiable): preops/postops, in-office injections, surgery scheduling, and shared rounds

-Trauma call is typically once/twice weekly & one weekend monthly

-Health/dental paid (I think)

-Profit sharing & 401k (matched, vested after 1 year)

-License/DEA/AAPA&state/malpractice paid

-1 month PTO (vacation, sick, personal, CME)

-CME $1500
