DD2PA Posted November 24, 2021 Share Posted November 24, 2021 (edited) Currently working at a covid site, work 44 hrs per week, contract so no benefits or anything. I make about $94,000 per year. I'm fairly new grad in FL (this is my first job after graduation) and have had a very hard time finding a job. I was lucky to be given this opportunity and took it. I like my job but I need to a clinic or hospital where I will learn and grow as a provider and I know I won't get that here. Also, this job is temporary and I don't know how long it will last so I have been applying just throwing the line out there to see if there are better opportunities for growth. I interviewed at a GI clinic and although everyone seemed nice and the doc very knowledgeable and I know I would learn a lot but the contract they are offering me seems like an immediate no. I am earning more now, with much less stress but not learning anything. Please let me know if there is anything I should ask more about, I don't have much practice as a new grad so any comments would be helpful! Here are the details: Salary: $75,000 Clinic pays for any professional licenses and memberships Clinic pays for malpractice but I would have to pay for tail coverage in the event I am terminated and quit 2 weeks PTO 2 Long weekends off 2 major holidays off 401K with employer matching (percentage not on contract) No CME allowance was mentioned on the contract Noncompete for 2 years in any GI clinic or Multispeciality clinic with 10 mile radius of the clinic I would work every other weekend rounding and some days during the week in solely in the hospital once fully trained. There was mention in the interview of raises based on how the doctors "believe I am improving" but no set parameters mentioned on contract There was mention in the interview of "making more money if I refer patients who get approved for clinical trials they are a part of" but nothing was mentioned on the contract. PS: Checked the AAPA salary report and I would be in the 10% for salary in GI speciality in Florida with 0-1 yr of experience which is my situation.
