Not bad...I work in a RHC lower mid-west, very low COL, I make ~$94/year including productivity, NHSC HSPA 18 (just submitted my application last week), retirement is a little low, 3% is normal (try to get that increased); I get my insurance paid for 100% (so I would get more than $30-100 for that reimbursement), PTO is fine with CME/sick (it sounds fair to me), CME is good at 3K, fees paid for is good and uptodate same as malpractice. This offer is very close to what I make and same area so I would ask for 3% 401K match and better health insurance coverage, keep everything else the same! Let me know! Good luck!

Thanks for the details, that's really helpful!

could always try to get to 90k after one year. Also, is the student loan repayment every year or just once? Ask about raises as well.

They seem unwilling to change the base at all, unfortunately...

Student loan repayment is recurring yearly for 5 years, taxed as income.  Raise to 90 after 2 years.

      Hello all,
      Long time reader, first time posting. I recently secured a job at a vascular surgery practice working with 2 different surgeons. The job includes working in all clinical settings (OR, inpatient, ICU, and clinic), but I am especially excited to be in the OR. My start date is at the end of August so I will have some down time before my first day. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations as to how I can prepare so I can put my best foot forward when I start. Books, online material, videos etc. (I am open to anything really). I do understand that the first year, as a new graduate, can be tough especially starting off in a surgical specialty.
      Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

      Hey everyone, I graduate tomorrow and take the PANCE at the end of this month. Assuming I pass, I'll have 01 June - 31 December, 2021 free to spend back home in California. I start my residency Jan, 2022 in Houston. I'm going to spend the first month of my free-time enjoying life and focusing all my attention on my family. After that, I know I'm going to be itching to do something. I understand that due to my residency start date, finding any work will be difficult. I talked to a few preceptors and one preceptor mentioned to go get my DOT Certification and go work at an urgent care and do DOT physicals. Is this realistic with the short time I'll have (5 months)? Another provider mentioned COVID clinics. Is this also realistic?

      In addition to the two options mentioned above, are there any other "job" options for someone in my situation? I am open to anything. After taking the PANCE I'm sure I'll be super motivated to work and learn new things. I just want to do something and make some money while I wait for my residency to start. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Hello everyone,
      I am currently in the process of applying to cardiology jobs. I'm finishing up school in NC and applying out here as well, but ideally I'd like to end up back home in the Seattle/Tacoma area after graduating.
      I do have a few leads, including an initial call with a recruiter for one of the larger hospital systems later this week, but I am wondering if there are any cardiology PAs here practicing in the Seattle/Tacoma area who would be willing to share any insight about salary, the different hospital systems, current job market, etc.

      I am a new grad PA practicing for about 4 months. I work in occ med/urgent care. Without getting into specifics. A patient had and intraarticular finger fracture. I treated/ splinted conservatively and referred the patient stat to a hand specialist on the date of injury, who did not get seen until 2 months after her date of injury, due to WC insurance. The patient was unable to have surgery due to the timing of being seen by the surgeon. The patient will have permanent and stationary deficits and need future medical care for possible joint fusion. The patient is currently undergoing PT. Not only did I do a disservice to the patient as far as ensuring timely care, but the referral department did as well. How do I manage this going further? Obviously try to regain as close to normal function prior to the patients injury. I am learning from this experience when referring, especially with intraarticular fractures. I feel like this is my first error in patient care that has affected the patients condition and has directly impacted the patients quality of life and functionality. How should I proceed? Any recommendations? Not looking for validation nor looking for critique (no more than I am already giving myself). Need suggestions on how to proceed further in my attitude and semi guilt with this case. Thank you in advance.

      Hi everyone,
      In my myriad Google searches, I seem to have found the answer, but I want to confirm this before I play the waiting game.  I have applied for state licensure in CA, but I am still waiting on approval. Can I apply for my DEA before the license comes through? The answer seems to be no, that I must be fully licensed before I even begin my application for a DEA.
      Anyone have any light to shed on this? Any way for me to speed up the waiting game?
      Thanks much!
