    Why do you want TEE experience if there are no hearts?

    My guess is billing.

    Not with those hours. Hourly rate sounds like Kaiser. It's not the Navy group either.

    It's not a red flag, just an unusual payment method. Some places, like Kaiser and some academic programs, pay extra for work after hours. Most traditional partnerships do not. Maybe extra pay for taking call, but all the other "late" time, etc averages out in the quarterly/annual partner's bonus.

    I wasn't suggesting it isn't useful in non-cardiac; just that you will be billing for it--correct? Yeah.
