I'm a PA who's been working in Oklahoma doing general surgery and urology at the same hospital since I graduated in May 2018. I have two concerns:
1) I finished a 1-year contract and resigned for a 3-year contract which bases my annual bonus off of RVUs (very low 1520). I recently finished the first year of this contract and I've been told the hospital doesn't know how many RVUs I've accumulated because they don't know how to calculate my RVUs from surgery. Apparently, they have always had this issue with RVU calculations for PAs (there is only one other PA working in ortho at this hospital) and they've been "working to figure it out" , but I've been asking for my productivity for about two years and have yet to get ANYTHING useful. In fact, I have been stood-up twice by the clinic manager for scheduled meetings to discuss productivity.
2) As I mentioned, recently finished off the first year of that contract. I requested an annual review and the clinic manager completely ignored that portion of my email. Seems completely unprofessional to not perform reviews. Convinced my first job at a bowling alley was more professional than this.
Wondering if this kind of thing is normal or just a lazy clinic manager...and maybe any legal advice regarding them giving me a contract with a metric that they have admitted they don't know how to measure. Thanks in advance.
I'm a new grad PA (started the program right out of high school) who just received a job offer for a hospitalist position with the details here:
40 hour week. Five 8 hr shifts a week. Overnight from Sun- Thurs 11pm-7am.
$85,000 base pay
$15,000 for overnight annual bonus. Would be taken away if I switched to days.
4 weeks PTO
1 sick week
1 week CME and $1500
Paid DEA liscense.
I'm curious if I should ask for more base pay. Any opinions? Thanks!

We are required to follow all COVID regulations set forth by the facilities we enter, which may include masks, gowns, face shields, questionnaires, and temperature checks. Some facilities may require a current COVID test as well.
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?
