Patho Posted May 23 Share Posted May 23 (edited) Need some input from the group. I was offered a hospital medicine position requiring me to rotate between 3 local hospitals where I'll work for ~3-4 months each time, 2 sites are 30 min, 1 is 1hr away. The position is basically styled as an internal locums position by this company that staffs hospitals. I'm not familiar with the pay scale for locums position but usually they're higher paying as 1099 with no benefits besides from travel related expenses. I want to push for 100/hr but overall is this a fair offer? Comes out to be 173K/yr. Any other fields like UC makes more than this with benefits? Details Maryland, Washington DC area W2 Employee 10 hr shifts 7 on 7 off 15 patients case load (I used to see 14, so don't mind as long as I'm fairly compensated) No Codes Pay: 95/hr PTO: 14 days annually + sick 6 paid Holidays Health, dental, vision covered 401K 2% match, 4 yrs vesting period 100% Malpractice with Tail CME: 1500 Last HM position I worked, MD/DO's saw 14-18 rounding patients, Doc rate was 108/hr. So with 15pts per shift I'm seeing doc range but also have to act as a locum PA traveling around. I feel 110/hr is fair but the HR person was being difficult. Would asking for a sign-on bonus be more effective in this case or keep asking for more until I get a final ultimatum. Thank you.
