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
Hi there! I am a new graduate that recently accepted a general surgery job from a local metro hospital. I will have the opportunity to perform a lot of procedures and with time a lot of autonomy. I am excited, but I am also aware of all that I don't know and still have a lot to learn. Is there any advice or textbooks any of you could give? I was a scrub tech for years before attending PA school, so the OR life is like home to me.
So I have graduation coming up soon, and have recently been offered a job in general surgery. I'm in a state that does not have the best median salary for PA's.
The offer is 80k for first 6 months, then 85k for next 6 months, then 90k after 1 year. After 6 months I can begin to collect a bonus of 1% of my supervising physician's net collections which is paid out quarterly. I should also add that they've agreed to pay me a monthly stipend of $1,000/month until graduation, which would total $5,000. They are offering full benefits, $1500 + 1 week off for CMEs, & 10 vacation days (will go up to 15 days after 1 year).
It's a very busy job with long hours but I love the physician and love surgery. I learn so much every day. I guess I am just looking for reassurance that this is a respectable offer. I was honestly expecting to start out higher than 80k, but since there is a guaranteed salary raise plus the bonus it seems like a good compromise.
I am a new grad looking for work in Eastern Kentucky. After a rotation with a surgeon, I was offered a job this December and am now graduating. He is the only practicing surgeon in our county and is looking to hire a midlevel to help lighten the load- he and staff have never had a PA/NP before. He sees my first year or two as a learning experience and expects to work closely with me; I will have 3 days a week in the clinic and 2 surgery days. He said he expects to treat me as a resident during this time. He would like to split call between us equally. A large company owns our hospital and has extended me this offer
Salaried position at $38.61/hr (around 80,300 annual)
No incentives for taking call
Option to pay into dental, vision and health insurance (around $80 total from what I can see)
No ear marked CME (HR said I have to ask my clinical manager and see how much they will contribute)
PTO includes holidays, but they have not provided more info this
401(k) with matching for first 1% and match half of next 5%
* no contract has been offered- HR said they only contract "providers" not midlevels
No word on liability or licensing fees
I was hoping to recieve some help from this awesome community on how to proceed. I LOVE this office and the hospital staff and genuinely want to take the offer, but I also want to be fairly compensated for my work. During my rotation I was working around 65 hrs/week so this offer seems a little low if I am to continue working in a similar fashion. All of my classmates have been recieving contracts, it seems a little odd to me not to- I feel really uncomfortable working without that safety net. Any words of wisdom or advice on how to make this work would be excellent.
