Hi all. Our EM practice is in the works of developing a head PA/NP position (manager in a sense). Currently we have a liaison who is a physician-but the physician wants to turn it over to the APPs. Since this is a new trial process for our group, I wanted to reach out and see what the job description and stipend/benefits your group gives to the PA/NP who is essentially "in charge" of the APPs at your practice. If you could tell me the type of practice you work in, location (state), job description for head APP (rough expectations), and stipend/benefits for that position I would greatly appreciate it.

I was a head coach for a club volleyball team during my freshman year of college. Does this count as something that would fall under the leadership experience tab in CASPA? I was in charge of creating our practices, communicating with parents and players, organizing tournament travel, etc.
I live in MN and and undergoing a merge with a larger company. I have almost 2 years of experience in orthopedics. It is private practice single specialty. They gave us an offer letter that we have to look over and sign before we begin our employment with them 1/1/17.
Salary 94,000 no bonus. Call will remain same 1:4. Offer seems low to me, but about the same that I am currently making, but I feel like I am underpaid now.
24 days PTO
1 week CME, $2500
All of the other standard stuff
My biggest concern on this letter is that my direct supervisor is my office manager who I do not particularly like since she does not understand my role/responsibilities, and would like to avoid this from happening. Does anybody else have direct supervisor? Isn't it usually your physician? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
