    Hi SDN! I’ve been offered a couple associate contracts and both have indicated that I would be responsible for 100% of lab fees. Is this standard? It seems odd to me that this expense would fall on the associate. Obviously a lot of whether this is fair to the associate or not depends on how...

    Non Billable Expenses

    How do students pay for non billable expenses such as transportation, books and supplies, and other random stuff. My school estimates it will be 10,000 dollars a year for this stuff. I only have enough money saved for one and a half semesters. What do you do when you run out of your savings?

    Are Hem/Onc docs paid less than hospitalists in general?

    I heard from a current Hem/Onc fellow that hospitalists are paid higher than Hem/Onc specialists. I thought Hem/Onc had greater salaries, almost on par with Pulm/Crit and Cardiology, so I was just wondering how far was true. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Of course location and other factors affect these numbers, but the impression I get is that if money were the only factor, one could reliably work year-round at around 150/hr. Then I see things like...
