Just to be clear, I did not report you. I don't agree with your point of view and you were unnecessarily antagonistic, but that in and of itself is not a reason for me to report you. You are more than willing to make a fool of yourself in a public forum if you'd like - I won't stop you.It's SDN... Some posters have privileges here, so they can get you banned. I don't know if you had a private conversation with the poster in question, but you did not say anything egregious in this thread to warrant probation. Oh well! Be careful so they don't have any excuses to ban you so you can continue to contribute here...
Wow, that's quite nice. I'm assuming this is providing complete, 24-hour coverage for Saturday and Sunday? I can't imagine that's the rate for just rounding and/or seeing new patients.Hospital I interviewed at in Texas had residents getting 5-6k a weekend of inpatient coverage as well (external moonlighting). Just another fyi.
Who can I contact? Thanks!!How is 4K for 48 hour coverage in a 300 bed hospital where you cover ED, inpatient unit, and consults on all 300 beds? Recruiter says you’re only responsible for rounding Friday and Saturday on about 10 inpatients (the doctor you're covering) and any new admits you bring in. But you also have to round on a child unit which seemed odd as a resident?
Yeah but when you’re on the entire weekend, they give you a lump sum they don’t pay you hourly. Like they’re not gonna give you 140/hr which is around 7k for the weekend because you’re not actually working every hour, or maybe they are I don’t actually know that’s why I’m askingThat's $83/hr.
Residents at my program are getting 6-7k a weekend to moonlight externally.Yeah but when you’re on the entire weekend, they give you a lump sum they don’t pay you hourly.

Hours are averaged over a month for one. For two, most third years residents aren't doing more than 50 hours a week...so a 90-100 hour week with weekend moonlighting wouldnt come close to violating the monthly hour limit.My understanding is that you are not allowed to violate duty hours inclusive of your moonlighting. Being on for a whole weekend would likely violate duty hours if you are either in house or called in overnight and see patients the next day. Whether there are consequences or anyone would know/care if you work a full weekend is another thing.
I get that covering for a weekend may be paid as lump sum, but if you're in house (and it sounds like you are) or get called more nights than not, this sounds really, really light pay unless there are visa/other factors stopping you from getting a better job.
If I were expected to work overnight most nights and physically see patients (vs. phone call with a very unusual going in in person), I wouldn't start the conversation until the fee was doubled and then I would negotiate.
