I am graduating PA school in August and have been given a job offer in Gastroenterology. I am really excited for this job, but don't know how to negotiate the contract or if it is good enough as it stands.
starting pay is $90,000 salary. mentions bonuses but does not have in writing a sign on bonus moving bonus, RVU performance, or pay raises.
PTO 3 weeks, sick leave 1 week, CME 1 week.
$1500 CME per year.
year to year contract
malpractice is included but does not mention a tail
an 18 month non compete that covers two counties. I would cause irreparable damage if I break this non compete.
my negotiating leverage (I was an endoscopy tech for two years. did my masters thesis on GERD. I speak Spanish fluently).
I am a new grad PA and I start a job in a month for a GI consulting service. I will spend 3 weeks of the month in the hospital doing consults, rounding, dictating notes and 1 week in clinic. I did a rotation in GI during school, but it was all outpatient Hepatology with a day a week in a general GI clinic. So I don't feel super prepared to go to the consulting service right now.
Can any GI PAs recommend any books/resources that you found helpful for hospital work? It would be greatly appreciated!! I found a book online called: Textbook of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition--- It is quite pricy-- 250$.... But it if it useful I will buy it.
Curious if anyone had recommendations for useful gastroenterology books, as I will begin working in an inpatient & outpatient setting in 2 weeks. I would like to study the "basics" so the practice doesn't instantly regret hiring me ;) Any recommendations (or even advice) is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
(P.S. -- yes, I did see that the same question was posted in 2011. Though, would like to see if people have different ideas 7 years later!)
