So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
(Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)
Hi guys, I am set to graduate in August, but I have started looking for jobs because I want to work as soon as I can after graduation and PANCE. My current interests are Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Hospitalist.
I am living in Texas currently, and I am planning to stay here. But I have a hard time finding a job, most are specialty-based, on top of that, 90% requires you to have 2+ years experience. I was wondering if you guys have any tips or resources that are open to new grads. Thanks.
New grad and wanted to ask a few questions. Most things on contract seem great but I have a few questions:
They are offering claims made coverage with full tail, is this equivalent to occurrence coverage?
90k salary, 3k sign on bonus, no production bonus. Should I be getting a production bonus? If so, what is a normal %? Minimal call
Profit sharing plan after 1 year (25%?), 4 years I'm 100%.
Is it reasonable to ask for student loan assistance? I am not in a rural city.
I am an experienced PA with 6.5 years total experience - 3 years in surgery and 3.5 years in dermatology.
I got a job offer in major city in North Carolina.
$120 K base Salary
4.5 day workweek, avg. 30-35 patients/day, but they are expecting to see more
20% production bonus on collections over $250 K after 16 months
$1500 / year for CME
$1500 / year for license and DEA
Malpractice and health insurance
3 weeks for vacation/sick/CME; 4 weeks after 1 year
24 month non-compete covering five counties in the metro area where they have offices.
If anyone has the recent AAPA Salary report, can you give me some feedback?
I am new to the forum and have seen that there is a lot of experience on here. I will be graduating in August and have a job offer in derm. I worked there before as a medical assistant and so negotiations feel a little more touchy if that makes sense. Here are the details:
-$70,000 for first year
-Full benefits for me, my wife and dependents
-3 wks PTO
-1 wk CME with $2,000 allowance
-society/membership fees covered (to a point)
-noncompete for 2 years in 8 mile radius
-second year will get a raise and will be base salary plus production bonus (no specifics on how much raise or bonus structure)
What do you guys think? I don't want to be greedy but I think 70,000 is still on the low side even for a training year in derm. I really like the office and don't want to overstep by asking for a sign-on bonus or maybe to consider a raise once I start seeing patients. I am in Utah by the way.
