Additional $10 per hour OT differential
84 hours biweekly: 12 hour shifts, alternating weeks of 3 and 4 shifts, work every other weekend. (I currently work M-F, >50 hrs/week)

6 Training shifts of 4-6 hours only
$1200 CME per year
4 weeks PTO

that is a very short training period that raises a red flag especially because you have less than 9 months total exp and haven't worked this kind of medicine. How many patients per day on avg? Solo provider raises an even bigger red flag. Doesn't sound like the best environment for a new grad

They state the clinic sees between 12-25 patients on average in a 12 hour shift. Max was 35.

The short training period also worries me...

They say that the supervising physician is always available and I can always call the other UCs to speak with the provider there. Still makes me nervous
