RandomD Posted November 6, 2015 Share Posted November 6, 2015 I will be graduating in December and have two offers right now. One is a private practice and the other is a hospital affiliated clinic. I have already negotiated some increases from the private practice and the hospital group will not negotiate, so these terms are pretty much set. On the surface, the hospital gig looks better, but I have been told by other PAs (and the practice) that private practice will have better long term earnings. Being a new grad, I'm not sure how true that is. In any case, I would appreciate any thoughts you all have. Thanks!!
