I have 7 years experience as a PA (1 year General Surgery, 3 years IM private practice, and now 3 years at my current position in a family medicine outpatient clinic) in rural Kentucky. It is time for contract negotiations after 3 years of work here. I am outpatient only with no call, 4 days per week; averaging 18-20 patients per clinic day. My base salary is $93k, Encounter based bonuses ($16.59 per encounter over minimum 663 per quarter which does not prove profitable for me so basically my salary is less than $97k total), $2500 CME plus 40 hours PTO, 24 days PTO plus 12 sick days, Malpractice and license fees paid. Insurance and retirement are self funded. No 401k. I have continuously had superior provider ratings, increased clinic volume (with the highest in the local system for at least one year), diligent with completion of charts and never take days off. Recommendations on asking for raise?
So i've received this offer from an UC ,and I was looking over the employment offer and some things stood out to me. I just wanted to get you guys take on it. I've included the concerning parts below.
Does the first part before the non compete clause mean that I cant have a second job outside of the clinic, like if I wanted to do part-time/prn at a hospital? As for the non-compete, is it basically saying I cant work at any other UC for 2 years after I leave? I'd really appreciate the feedback! Thanks

Hello everyone! I had recently posted about a derm offer, but I got another offer at a different practice/state and would love some thoughts on this one.
Salary: 36 hour work week, Training salary for 4 months at a rate of 75K, and then 80K with bonus of 10% for collections exceeding 60K for a 3 month period that will be paid quarterly.
Time off: 2 weeks PTO, 1 week of sick time, 2 days for CME and 2 personal days along with 7 paid holidays.
Malpractice covered. 50% of tail coverage if I stay with practice for 2 years.
Health insurance plan: 280/mo towards it
401K: allowed to enroll after 1 year
Restrictive covenant for 7.5 miles
State: Pennsylvania, outside philly
Counters that I’m thinking:
- I’m okay with the training period salary but will counter with 90K w/ 10% collections
- 5 days for CME
- Tail coverage required now
- CME 2K
- I need to get more info on the health insurance aspect.
I really really like the Physician and she has a great plan for how to train/incorporate me into the practice. I feel like it would be a great opportunity but I also want to ensure I’m making the right decision realistically.
I would love any input from you guys! Thank you!
I have been offered a job running a clinic and want to get some feedback on the offer. I have one year experience in a busy ER. I would be running the clinic by myself, and there would be a 2-4 month "mini fellowship" where I would be traveling to their different clinics for one-on-one training and examinations, etc.
Here is the offer:
Training Pay $75000 (pro-rated for the 2-4 month training)
Base pay which starts immediately after training- $140k
Bonus Structure paid quarterly: 20% of collections greater than $35k per quarter. (I wouldn't likely start hitting this bonus in the first year because this is a new clinic which needs to be built up)
15 days PTO plus holidays
5 days CME with no allowance
100% health coverage for me. I pay to add my family members.
Potential for partnership down the road.
I'd love some feedback, please! I am a little nervous to leave a stable position, but I know derm positions are hard to come by without experience.
Thanks in advance
