New grad currently negotiating part-time PA position in Family Practice. I've done clinical rotations and scribed at a Family Practice office in NYC and will be working part-time until I start a Residency program in the fall. Trying to figure out what I should expect in a part-time contract if anything in terms of benefits, PTO, CME, etc. Also, trying to discern if it is in my best interest to be a part-time employee or 1099.
Thanks in advance!
3 years in Derm.
Right now :
1. Part time pay $57.50 an hour no benefits except 401k he’s putting in 3%. Only PA in solo practice. One time bonus in December of $1,500. Pays for all CME activities no cap, but does not pay accommodations or other expenses.
2. Work 20-25 hours a week. I tally about 60 patients a week and sometimes less.
3. I Do some cosmetics
4. I was offered productivity based salary at first, had no Derm experience but I declined because I was brand new to practice. Worked IM 3 years before starting.
same base salary : part time hourly $57.50
productivity: net Collections first year 3%, 2nd year 4% and 3rd year 5% above 200k. Reports quarterly but collected and calculated from Whole practice
30% in cosmetic procedures
Same benefits as above
Currently I am getting paid a salary but if I reach a certain level of production ( I have to see about 280-300 pts a month in my FP clinic to reach that) I get paid 25% of my collections. This is not in addition to my salary so its not like a bonus or anything. My question is about production pay. I am wondering if any PA's out there are on straight production. This is the model that they are wanting to start. Again the number that they are going to give us is 25% of collections which seeing about 300 pt/month comes out to like 9300 (pretax, benefits, etc.) I feel that the percentage should be 30-40% from what I have heard and read about but again I am not sure. I have been working as a PA for 3 years and don't know a lot about "production pay" only. Is 25% good, ok or just crap? Any insight would help as I am going to be talking to my company in about a week to discuss this.
I have 3 years of experience as a PA practicing full time in NYC. I am now looking to leave my full time position in FM for a part time position (I recently had a baby and want to spend more time at home). I have never worked a part time position before and what to get an idea of what other PAs are recieving so that I'm better prepared for my job search.
1) salary. I understand it varies but is $65/hour reasonable?
2) health insurance . Do part time employees usually receive coverage?
3) if health insurance is offered is it fair to ask for more compensation in lieu of it? (We are on my husband's plan anyway)
4) How Much PTO does a part time PA usually receive? Sick days? Holidays?
5) is it fair to ask for CME reimbursement and/or PTO for CME?
6) licensing and credentialing fee reimbursement ?
So I'm in my 30s and I have children. How much can they work with you to find a schedule that works for you? Could I, say, do rotations most days so that it's between 8-4? Is this out of the question with some late nights thrown in?
My dream really is to be a PA or an MD. Because of the brutal residency that MDs have to do, I decided with kids that wasn't the avenue I should take. I feel for me it would be too much time away from home. Someone said that PAs don't have to do same kind of 24 + hour long rotations, but I just read they do.
What is accurate and do we have to do very long rotations? I'm so torn here.
