Feedback on Contract-Hospitalist

Recommended Posts


I would love some feedback on a contract that I was offered. A little bit about me, I have 3 years of experience in FM. In school did alot of inpatient medicine/critical care rotations. Have been interested in hospital medicine for quite some time, but not much opportunity in my area and have stuck around the area because I like it so much. A hospitalist position came up, which isnt too common around these parts and they offered me a job. Job is with a contracting service. Pay is $75/hr, 7on/7off, 2000 CME, malpractice w/ tail, good health and dental, reasonable 401K match. Swing shift (which I am ok with) primarily admitting patients from the ED. Unclear how uch onboarding/training I would be getting but am planning on hammering out those details. No PTO which may end up being a deal breaker. Hospital is mid-size w/ MD backup on call, so no responsibility for running codes. Would expect to admit some to the ICU, but not common place.


Overall seems like a reasonable offer given the pay and it is in the specialty I would like to work, so I think I am willing to suck it up about the PTO. Would love to hear some thoughts/feedback.

I remember years ago interviewing for a hospitalist job with the same situation, they said you get 26 weeks off in a year so there is no need for PTO, you can always trade shifts if you need to. I spoke with one of the docs about his experience with this system and he told me earlier in the year his dad died and that he was able to get only half of a shift covered to make it to the funeral, then had to go back to work same day. I declined the job offer.
