Hi gang!

We're running into some comp structure issues at my company and while the AAPA report can be helpful, I'm not sure how truly reflective it is of our pay. If any of you wouldn't mind, we'd appreciate any input you have to offer regarding your comp!

thank you thank you thank you!

remember the average age and years of experience is very low in the AAPA poll

 

Just had it tried to be used against me in my job, and pointed out that not only were they using national figures and locally they are 40% higher, they also are comparing me (at almost 50 with 16+ years of experience and a DFAAPA) with the AVERAGE for someone 6 years out (or something like that as the AAPA data......

 

Rule #1, know your local market

Rule #2, know your data

Rule #3, know your value - and yup that can trump Rule #1-2...

      Hey folks,
      I've been working in emergency medicine for about 1 year in a setting with a good mixture of high acuity and fastrack patients at a teaching institution. I've also worked during this time per diem at a low volume urgent care. While this has been an outstanding first job in terms of resume building and learning, it of course has the downside of wild hours, nights, weekends, holidays, etc. at a rather noncompetitive hourly rate/salary. I don't hate the job, but I also don't see myself doing emergency medicine forever. Or at least...not at this salary.
      For those who started in emergency medicine, what are your thoughts on transitioning to an urgent care job? I have heard some describe a miserable existence of patient volumes upwards of 60 patients a day, but I am guessing this is very dependent on the institution. Are there other specialties that make for a natural transition from emergency medicine? Am keeping all my options open at this point. Thanks!

      I have a prior MS in Exercise Physiology (research emphasis) and then completed a dual degree PA program getting a MS in Management w/ the School of Business before starting the MMS for PA. The extra degrees will certainly be resume builders, but how much should I expect to use them for negotiating starting salaries? Should I expect a higher starting offer due to them or is that naive? Starting to have discussions with some practices and was hoping to get some ideas on the value those provide before it moves towards contract talks. I don't want to sell myself short, but don't want to come off as pompous and overvalue myself either! 
      I would be interested in either Ortho/Sports Med or Cardiology  
      Looking in NC. Currently in Winston-Salem, NC at Wake Forest University
      Appreciate the insight anyone can provide!

      Anyone that can help with compensation recommendations or salary range for Urgent Care Position. Looking in southern Maine. Expecting 1 or 2 offers from two different companies. I have 3 years of experience at a high volume/high acuity urgent care. Currently making 60$ an hour at a UC that keeps multiple providers on. In this new position I would be solo provider with MD or other PA available by phone for consultation when needed. AAPA salary report didn't have any data for UCs in Maine. I would like to make as much as a lateral move as possible as this would be a move to a higher cost of living area. I would appreciate any suggestions about negotiating salary or ranges especially from anyone in the Southern Maine area.

      Hello,
      I recently graduated and was offered a New Grad Hospitalist position in the New England area at a community hospital without some specialties and would like some feedback on the offer...
      Compensation: $48/hr, annually $99,840, plus incentive bonus (unknown amount), shift differential for night shifts $3/hr
      Schedule: 3 12hr shifts, alternating weeks of days and nights, 2 locations couple blocks apart, 6-10pts per day, great coaching and MD support, closed ICU/OBGYN, all surgical emergencies go to larger state hospital nearby
      PTO: 280hr allotment for all CME, sick, vacation, holidays, etc
      CME: $2500 for all license, DEA, certifications, etc
      Added bonus: AAPA Hospitalist bootcamp after 3-6months of starting, covered by the hospital
      Benefits: 10K loan reimbursement per year, relocation reimbursement coverage, 403b 3% match first year, then 5% match thereafter; Healthcare, Life insurance, AD&D, malpractice with tail coverage, etc. 
       
      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!
