bcbuchan Posted December 12, 2015 Share Posted December 12, 2015 I received an offer from an ER (see previous post) and an urgent care. I love ER, but, the pay for a new grad just isn't competitive enough. I interviewed at an urgent care recently, and I feel the pay is very competitive, but let me know what you think. -$65/hour, 12 shifts monthly, 13.5 hour shifts, guaranteed $126,360 annually, and able to pick up more shifts, (They said that they normally start at $50 for a new grad, but said I interviewed well and wanted to start me off higher. Never had to negotiate). -health and dental insurance are 50% paid by company, has disability. Tail and malpractice fully covered. -no PTO, no CME, did not offer sign on bonus, no reimbursement for licensing fees, and no time commitment required (just need to give 60 days notice if I were to quit) -will train for two months (this is not yet in contract, and HR seems to be dragging their feet). I need to wait until they include this in right? I definitely don't want to be thrown to the wolves all by myself. After two months, I will be the only provider during shift, but able to call supervising physician. Every shift could be at a different location in the metropolitan area, but verbally stated they try to keep the provider closer to their residence. My questions: I feel like this is a fair offer for a new grad? What are your opinions? Does two years of urgent care experience qualify as ER experience, if I ever want to go into ER? Also, I visited one of their locations on my own, and they don't use an EMR system? It's all paper? I've never done paper charting... I talked to the PA working there and she said she preferred it over EMR system (she was older though). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
