      SEMPA Procedures Course - More Than Half Full

      Don't miss out on learning life-saving emergency medicine procedures first hand at the SEMPA Procedures Course January 18-19, 2022. At the course you’ll engage in procedural education through hands-on training on high-fidelity trainers.
      Procedures include:
      Advanced Airway Management Lumbar Puncture Arthrocentesis IO Central Venous Access Tube Thoracostomy Needle Decompression Paracentesis Thoracentesis Peritonsillar Abscess Drainage Arterial Line Placement There will also be a procedural anatomy demonstration by instructors on human cadavers. But hurry! Space is limited for this event and more than half of the available slots are already full.

      Was hoping to get some opinions on an offer before I accept, this is my first contract as a new grad!
      Position is a fellowship located in New York, level III trauma center seeing 70K patients a year. First 12 months a physician will always also see your patients, with review to determine if you can begin seeing level 4/5 independently for the last 6 months. Not the greatest area but that means a very diverse patient population. There is NO residency program, so the PA fellows have first dibs at procedures and other opportunities if they want to learn them. Lead PA has been there 10+ years which tells me something, and says PAs get a very high level of autonomy in this ED with great physician support. 
      18 month contract (can sever with 120 days' notice)
      Full time hourly at $40.95/hr (+$5/hr night differential). 36 hours/week at 12-hour shifts rotating between observation, fast track and main ED. 5 hours/week didactic education. Opportunities to pick up additional shifts at 1.5x base. (Based on scheduling preferences/OT, anywhere between 88-100K/year)
      Full medical/dental/vision/disability benefits (Was told you don't get benefits summary until after you sign, is this standard? I find this strange and need to clarify)
      401K match (need to obtain details)
      Malpractice + tail
      Full reimbursement for license/DEA
      $1,500 CME allowance/year
      NO PTO except as required by state law (was told they work with your requests and are able to schedule you early one week/late next to gain 7-8 days off for vacation though)
      5K completion bonus at end of term, additional 5K retention bonus if you accept a position there at the end of the fellowship
      ACLS, ATLS, PALS, emergency ultrasound and emergency airway training provided
      Seems like a great opportunity as a fellowship to get my foot in the door of EM (have spent 5 months applying for EM positions in various states across the country with no bites, and I've been an EMT 8 years). Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, I received my first offer today after applying for what feels like a million jobs. The position is in emergency medicine. It's a hospital I worked in prior to PA school. They are offering me the following: 
      $60/hour with a guarantee of 120 hours per month (equals out to $86,400 annually) 120 hours PTO annually and 40 hours long term sick annually. Malpractice and tail insurance as well as CME credits through the company's online learning institute.  Benefits: medical, eye, dental and 401K with up to 3% match after a year of employment No reimbursement for licensing, DEA, or CME allowance as they provide CME credits through their online learning institute. I'm satisfied with the hourly rate, it's pretty on par with what I see in the AAPA salary report for NY new grads, but my question is - is this a good offer? The annual salary is quite low compared to the salary report for EM positions, but I believe that's due to the low number of monthly hours. I've asked for a signon bonus and I've asked to be guaranteed 140 hours per month as that raises my salary considerably, but I'm looking for opinions as I'm new at this and want to make sure I don't take the first offer I get just out of excitement to be offered a job.
       
      Thanks in advance!!
