New Grad ED Offer

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I was offered a full-time job in an emergency department in a low cost of living area and was looking for some thoughts on it. Overall I think it's a good offer being a new grad in a field that can be difficult to get into. Here's the details:

  • Wage: 60/hr first year with $10/hr nighttime differential. Increases to $65/75 the 2nd year. 140 hrs/ month requirement.
  • 1.5x pay for anything over 40 hours and holidays.
  • 144hrs PTO - unused paid out at the end of each year. Additional 40hrs long-term sickness which accrues each year
  • $2,500 CME.... I pay for licensing (plan to negotiate this out next contract)
  • $2,500 upfront relocation reimbursement.
  • Health, dental, vision, life insurance included
  • 401k 50% match up to 6%
  • Malpractice with tail
  • First week of training is full pay, anything more is half pay at $30/hr (pretty strict with this unfortunately).

Pretty pleased. They are offering up to 3 months of training but essentially whenever I feel ready. I don't have any other offers.

Not bad, I would get the licensing paid for as well as increased the relocation to at least $4,000. (I got $7,000) and move only 3 hrs away (cost about $4,000 for me to move that far). Do you have to pay a % for your health/dental/vision or is it paid in full (should be in full IMO). The training pay sucks, but what are you going to do...You can try to increase it to $40/hr or something...

      Can anyone tell me hourly rates for ER locums work, particularly for an experienced PA?  I have been ER PA for 21 years, negotiating locums 1099 agreement.  Current W2 rate is $80/hr
      Thx in advance for your reply

      Hi, 
      So here's the story.  I am beginning my first rotation and it is in the ED (no previous ED or UC experience).  My preceptors are all very nice and willing to help, but I can't help but feeling like I am neither measuring up nor reflecting my program well.  I wanted to get some feedback to gauge if this is a normal experience, as there are no other PA students at my site to compare notes with.  I received an hour training on the EHR and beginning the second day was expected to see a few patients on my own and present them to my preceptor with assessment and plan.  This wouldn't be a problem except that I am very slow in addition to having forgotten a lot of the medicine (I have a 3.8+ GPA from didactic year, but once I took the test most of the info seemed to blur into general confusion).  I have no idea what to do with the mass of lab results from the current and previous ED encounters, nor sure that I've ruled out even 50% of the serious conditions.  I am also very slow at charting (for reference, my program allowed multiple days to finish one entire SOAP or H&P note).  I am also very poor at multi-tasking, which is an awful quality for the ED.  I know I am trying and that I am reasonably intelligent, but this makes me think I should have stuck with some desk job rather than managing healthcare. For all of these reasons I can tell that I am a drain on the preceptors who are already busy. I get that I am here to learn from the preceptors, but can't help but feel that this is not how things should be.  I do ask for feedback, but the preceptors are SO nice that I can't tell what they truly think. I'd appreciate any advice, what's normal, whats not, etc.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I am currently a PA practicing in urgent care/ER ( 4 years of experience) looking to switch my job closer to home.
      I was wondering if I can get your guys' input for an ER offer i just received. 
      $70/hour + RVU, 120 hours/month in considered full time, 
      $1500 for CME
      no PTO, no sick leave
      Malpractice/health/dental included
       
      Currently, I work at a ER (teaching institute)  that pays $50/hour,  12 paid holidays/year,  2 weeks PTO, 12 sick days, great health/dental insurance, malpractice covered, 
      i get about $1500 for CME, and pension when i retire. I am looking for a change because i have a really long commute and currently work 5 8-hours shifts.

      Hey all,
      Recent grad here and I've been in talks about per diem work for a second ER. My question is how your scheduling works out between your FT and per diem.
      I've been under the impression that a schedule will be available to me for the per diem site, and I pick up any available shift at my leisure. But this doesn't seem to be the case so far.
      I've been asked to guarantee 3 shifts a month including one weekend shift, plus a summer and a winter holiday every year. I talked that down to just one guaranteed weekend shift per month.
      Also, my FT job hasn't published a schedule for August yet but my per diem job is asking me for my availability. They're used to publishing the schedule early and have asked me to put in request for a couple days. I'd rather not get into the habit of making requests for 3 days every month and jeopardize not getting time off when I actually need it.
      Any input is greatly appreciated.
