Hi!! My name is Morgan and I am a PA student halfway through my clerkship year and its time to choose an elective! Does anyone know of any PA, NP, MD, DO willing to precept in either Plastic Surgery or Women's health, L&D. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I am a second year PA-S and I just completed my women's health rotation. I ended up loving obstetrics more than I thought I would! I was researching different jobs in OB/GYN and came across maternal fetal medicine. From the research I have found, it seems to be a very interesting and rewarding field! However, I have asked a couple of the providers at my rotation about a PA's role in MFM, and they have all said it is minimal. I looked online and there are MFM job postings for PA/NP's, so I have a couple questions for everyone:
1) Do PA's have a role in MFM?
2) If yes, what is their scope/daily life like? Are they mainly in the clinic? Rounding in the hospital? Do they help in the OR?
Thank you for your feedback and information!
My SP is retiring and selling his FM practice. I am looking for advice on salary negotiation with the new supervising physician.
The new SP has big aspirations for the practice and plans to add many updates which is exciting but it appears that it will also come with quite the workload increase.
I suspect that we will be marketing the practice more which means more patients. (I currently average 15 per day)
He wants me to credential at the local hospital and round on our patients in the morning if they were admitted to the hospital in the morning prior to seeing patients at clinic.
He also wants me to begin taking call (one weekend a month) at the local hospital.
We may also round at the local Nursing Homes one day a week
Current Base: 90k. No Production bonuses
With the added workload that will be expected, any advice on if I should ask for a raise vs productivity bonus?
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!
