Right...maybe in Canada...$81,000
... with higher pay in the midwest and southeast and possibly lower pay on the west coast and in the northeast. You'll be making much more than $81K regardless...unless you work part-time (which isn't a bad deal either).
if you can work it, you'd really want the company/entity you're going to work for to cut a check directly to the moving/relocation company. if the company adds moving expenses to your income, that just raises your amount of taxable income. having the company directly cut a check to the moving company avoids that. of course if they're not willing to do it that way, then you don't really have a choice. as far as the amount to receive for moving expenses of course depends on how much stuff your moving (1 bedroom apartment versus 4 bedroom house), how far you're going, and time of year.Im looking for a hospitalist job for j1 waiver. Offers I have from my recruiter are between 180-200k. But I have not yet asked her about signing bonuses or moving expenses. Any idea how much should we ask for?
depends on the situation/company/group. there are so many different forumulas/set ups. when i was applying/interviewing this year, i heard of:The $200k salary is with a one week on and one week off work schedule right?
I know in my area the hospitalists make about 180K but work one week on and one week off.
Can you work more than this (1 on and 1 off) to make more?
Where would you say you fit in the 150-250 range you gave: upper, lower, or middle? Was it easy finding an attractive hospitalist job in NYC (in terms of set-up and salary), or is the market pretty saturated?I am currently a hospitalist in NYC
It pretty much depends on the set-up.(Employee vs group, production bonus, and area of the country, and how hard you are willing to work)
Salary ranges from in the northeast anywhere from $150k to 250k.
My friends in the south are doing at least 200k and up. I have friends in Texas making >275k in Texas, but are busting their ass for that kind of production.
Anyone that is making less than 145K is doing part time (like a nocturnalist), in a employee situation working a straight 40 hours a week, or just doesnt know the market
Depends on what your definition of 'attractive'Where would you say you fit in the 150-250 range you gave: upper, lower, or middle? Was it easy finding an attractive hospitalist job in NYC (in terms of set-up and salary), or is the market pretty saturated?
Relax and pass gross anatomy first my friend. It will be there. You got 6 years before your worry about that,Do people ever use a hospitalist job as a segway into a fellowship? Lets say they apply to cardiology but dont get a position anywhere; can they work as a hospitalist for a 2 or 3 years then reapply succesfully? I knew of one guy who did this but he was doing cardiology research at the same time as he was doing hospitalist work.
Is doing hospitalist work seen as an effective way to boost your resume and your chances of matching into a fellowship? Or would doing research likely be a better way to do so? Maybe a masters degree or mph?
