Out of curiousity Neurochica, who do you contact to discuss work directly? Most of the locums gigs have been looking--as you've said--to use the locums as a way to hire a permanent candidate--how do you bypass this objection?

Many thanks for your input thus far--it's really nice to see someone getting their worth from admin.
I talk to the person who is doing the hiring. Because they are looking for permanent docs, you need to be able to communicate to them that you are a solution to their problem.
Once You are in the door, they rather pay a premium to a known commodity than risk having a really bad doc so they’ll keep calling.

I'm trying to decide what to do with my life and although compensation is not huge deciding factor, I just finished my neuro rotation and absolutely loved it and am hoping to get more knowledge

I think largely depends on location, practice type, and fellowship (for procedures and stuff). But always would love more info on this as well as an applicant this year

Surveys say high 200s but anecdotally I see low 300s.

If you loved neuro then you should go for it. You’ll always make good money. Better money than primary care, hospitalists and nonprocedural IM specialties.

High 200s to low 300s for base compensation with productivity incentives to get beyond that is what I saw most commonly during my job search. There will be outliers in either direction. Lots of places with generous sign on bonuses as well (25 to 50k) although this was pre-covid.

Bottom line: if you love neuro then do it. The job market is one of the best in medicine.

Does anybody have knowledge of starting salaries in neurocritical care?

I tend to see high salaries for Neuro ICU jobs in private practice. However, many jobs are at academic centers in large cities. Can someone provide some info on how starting salaries for these academic roles in large cities compare to the high salaries often seen for neurointesivists in private practice?
