Vascular Surgery Interview

Recommended Posts

Can anyone share some good questions to ask during a vascular surgery interview?  I have worked as an ortho PA for years and am looking to make a change.  I generally know what to look for in a position but don't know what I don't know about working in this particular specialty.  I am looking for a little guidance from someone who's in it or has previously spent time working in it so that I can avoid being taken advantage of like I have while in ortho.  What do you wish you had known or someone had told you to look into before accepting the position?  Thanks, any advice or input is much appreciated...

I've done vascular for 3 years. Like it so far. Are you in OR, office, on the floor? How many cases or patients do you see? Are patients admitted under your service but and do you have to manage them? Are working with residents? How many surgeons and PAs are you with? Vascular cases are longgg. Are you staying late for all the cases? If so, do you get OT? Is there relief if you stay late? Will they pay for your loupes or lead? I can go into detail, but need to know what role you're in terms in inpatient, out, or surgery. What about weekend on call coverage?
