I was wondering if I could get some advice from folks with EM experience on what is a fair request for an annual raise. I've been with my current company (hospital) for 1.5 years but was with the independent group that worked for that hospital for 1.5 years prior to this (essentially I've been in the same ED for 3 years, we got out by the hospital 1.5 years ago). I've never received or requested any pay increase in the 1.5 years I've been categorized as a hospital employee. We're purely hourly, no RVU bonuses. I was wondering what a typical annual raise would be for an ED PA, and plan on asking for 1.5 times that since I'm that far in to the next year. To give a little background I have the above experience along with about 6 mo of urgent care prior to this. I don't have my most recent numbers however with the little stats that I've received over the years-- I have some of the more lucrative charting/billing of my colleagues and shorter total length of stay and door to MD times. Any advice regarding the negotiation process and % increase to ask for and then settle on would be greatly appreciated!

what is in your contract? some groups don't give annual raises, they just increase the base rate for the group every few years based on local trends. the group I just left did this. they had a "PA rate" that applied to everyone, regardless of experience from the new grad to the guy getting ready to retire who has been with the group for 25 years. ditto "doc rate" for same group, which worked out to about 3.5x the pa rate.

      Hello! 
      I am a PA located in Los Angeles, CA with a little over a year of outpatient primary care experience. I'm looking into transitioning out of primary care and into hospital medicine. I was offered an opportunity to join an internal medicine/nephrology group and start with hospital rounding 2 weekends/month covering 2-3 hospitals (average 10-20 patients). The pay would be $15 per Follow Up Visit and $25 per New Patient Consult or H & P.   Is this fair pay for a PA with my experience/background?  I currently get paid a base salary of 100K working 8 hours/day, 5 days/week, average 3 patients/hour. Inpatient medicine will be new for me. They offer training and physician supervision. Any insight appreciated. Thank you!

      Does this seem like adequate compensation in general, and is that a good differential for nights? How could I negotiate this if at all? The alternating weeks of days and nights sounds rough, how could I configure this? Any other comments or insights are appreciated!
      Thanks for your help!
