Well, you're coming in at kind of a weird time. EmCare just merged with Sheridan Health. We aren't really sure what is going to change but things almost certainly will. With EmCare, in my experience pay is very competitive but benefits are a little lacking. No 401k match or anything like that. We also don't have paid vacation. Hourly rate is high enough that none of that really bothers me. Sheridan really seems to like RVU based models, and there has been talk we may move that direction. Who knows... I'm in the Atlanta area, btw. What city are you near?

Thats good to know.  I'm pure 1099 currently so the benefits aspect is a non issue for me. I get no PTO, 401K, insurance etc.. I currently have a great RVU based model for bonus that I doubt will be matched but if so that will be awesome.  I'm in Augusta.

Emcare has been terrible to our group thus far. Constant changes. Literally you could walk into work one day and be told "Oh, your shift is now going to be two hours shorter starting today." We've had so many lay offs. Changes in our pay plan. If I didn't love ER so much I wouldn't work for this group.

Yikes  Sorry to hear this.  What Ed volume do you have? Any changes that you have liked?

      Hi everyone, I received my first offer today after applying for what feels like a million jobs. The position is in emergency medicine. It's a hospital I worked in prior to PA school. They are offering me the following: 
      $60/hour with a guarantee of 120 hours per month (equals out to $86,400 annually) 120 hours PTO annually and 40 hours long term sick annually. Malpractice and tail insurance as well as CME credits through the company's online learning institute.  Benefits: medical, eye, dental and 401K with up to 3% match after a year of employment No reimbursement for licensing, DEA, or CME allowance as they provide CME credits through their online learning institute. I'm satisfied with the hourly rate, it's pretty on par with what I see in the AAPA salary report for NY new grads, but my question is - is this a good offer? The annual salary is quite low compared to the salary report for EM positions, but I believe that's due to the low number of monthly hours. I've asked for a signon bonus and I've asked to be guaranteed 140 hours per month as that raises my salary considerably, but I'm looking for opinions as I'm new at this and want to make sure I don't take the first offer I get just out of excitement to be offered a job.
       
      Thanks in advance!!

      Did anyone study some type of resource in advance for their ER rotation during clinical year? If so, what book/resource did you use? I have it as my first rotation and I am extremely interested in doing ER in the future so I definitely want to impress. Any tips would be great!
