New Grad- Ortho offer

Recommended Posts



I'm just about to finish school, and I had my first interview and subsequent offer for an orthopedic position in Houston. Benefits and expected hours are as follows...

-$75,000, w/ potential production bonus at 6 months

-health insurance, malpractice, etc. covered

-$2,500 for CME w/ 4 days off

-paid licensure and certifications

-10 days of vacation


-approximately 7-5 M-F

-call one day/week and up to one weekend/month


Does this sound reasonable, or should I consider looking elsewhere? Thanks.

Not sure what it costs to live in Houston....but it sounds too low all around

75k is way low

Get the details of the bonus in writing

2 weeks vacation....ok but not great. Need to negotiate for more after a year

Ortho can be lucrative.....you can potentially make 500 k or 750k for the practice in the first year

Your starting salary is the most important....it doesn't go up by much later
