I'm currently searching for EMPA jobs in the Seattle area. Looking to move in late spring/early summer of 2021 for my boyfriend's job. I've completed a postgrad residency in emergency medicine in an inner city hospital in the midwest. Will have 2 years of experience by time of move, was also an EMT-B for 3 years prior to school. I was wondering if anyone had information on good hospitals/groups to look at or knows of any places hiring!
I am currently working on finishing out my second to last didactic semester and starting to plan for clinical rotations. I worked as a ED tech prior to PA school and loved it. I also worked a telemetry/cardiac floor tech and between that and lots of shadowing was most interested in EM. I would consider primary care and hospital medicine as well.
Is an emergency medicine residency a must in order to work ED? Can anyone give pros and cons? I am interested in a residency, but also would consider primary care or hospitalist medicine and maybe transitioning to ER eventually if I could not get an ER job right away without residency. Is that unreasonable to think of transitioning?
As far as rotations are there any rotations to try to get to either prepare for a EM residency or to apply for ED jobs without residency? We have 3 electives, plan to do extra EM electives. Is that the best way to use all 3 extra electives? Or add Trauma surgery, urgent care, critical care/ICU?
Does anyone work for or know of someone that works for Rush University Medical Center in Chicago? I am wondering what their emergency medicine advanced practice provider compensation model is like considering they are one of the only hospital institutions that don't use the EM staffing companies (TeamHealth, Envision, VEP, Vituity, etc.). How have you found their rates/benefits to compare to the staffing companies if you've worked for them previously?
I'm an ER tech (Starting PA school in August) at a large academic hospital where there is a Post Cardiac Arrest Service (PCAS) that receives post arrest transfers to the ER then ultimately ending up in the CCU. I met a PA who is starting on this service in the next couple months where I think he will split his time between the ICU coverage he does now and PCAS consults/research. He told me he will be the first PA that PCAS has had on and the position was sort of "created for him" through his prior work with the PCAS docs. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge of positions like this? I'm assuming this isn't too common but nonetheless is very interesting to me and something I hope to keep in mind as I think about specialties going through school.
Urgent care PA here with 1 yr of experience, got offered a position at a new UC and wanted to know your thoughts. Full time position in NYC. 12-14hr shifts and about 100 pts a day split between a PA And a SP. 3-4 shifts a week
96 hrs PTO first year
$1000/annually for CME and 3 days PTO for CME

I have another offer at a different urgent care offering $70 an hour. Benefits also similar to the above. However I would be working solo and personally do not feel fully comfortable with that.
Also Personally liked the vibe of the lower paying UC as well and it is closer to my home
Would it be fair game to negotiate for $70 an hour instead of $65 or does it feel like a solid offer to you guys?
I know its like nickles and dimes but its just a thought before I sign the contract and things become permanent. Dont want any what iffs in my head. I thank you all in advance for reading this and for your input.
