Anticipated Call is 1:3 weekdays, 1:4 weekends.
• Schedule – provider’s choice of 7 on/7 off schedule or more traditional schedule (M-F, a few evenings ‘til 7, may be asked to cover Saturday morning clinic in rotation with other providers)
Note: 7 on/7 off schedule will only require staying in the area during “on” weeks, traditional schedule will require full-time residence
• Average numbers for morning rounds:
o Floor census: 0-2 patients per day, about 15-20 minutes per patient. No complicated patients - any sick newborns or pre-term infants are transferred to other facilities.
o Nursery census: 1-5 babies averaging about 15-20 minutes to examine infant & speak with parents.
• We are a very busy pediatrics outpatient practice, but we are not a busy hospital for pediatrics; most on-call time is phone triage/advice rather than being @ hospital. Avg. 10-15 phone calls/day on weekends.
• Primary reason on-call Pediatricians do go back to the hospital is stat C-sections; very rarely to see an ER patient when ER provider isn't comfortable. Whenever possible, mothers in labor with infants with known abnormalities or pre-term labor are transferred prior to delivery. Many weekends there are no deliveries. A typical weekend will have 1-2 C-sections with remaining deliveries being routine.
• Hospital admissions are for routine Pediatric diagnoses such as asthma, dehydration, fever, pneumonia. No NICU/PICU - Admissions requiring specialty care or ICU care are transferred to other facilities.

Regarding salary, we greatly prefer for the provider to let us know his/her salary requirement either directly or through the recruiter. We don’t want to waste anyone’s time, but we greatly prefer being able to see the CV and know the amount they are looking for (and preferably a bit about their current package) and see if we think it is worth pursuing. There are so many factors – we ask providers to look at the whole package, cost of living differences (depending on where they are coming from), etc. Our contracts have a set salary amount (no productivity bonus), but the relocation, signing bonus, CME, licenses, company contribution toward employee medical insurance, and retirement plan contribution starting at 2nd anniversary add thousands of dollars to the package. If the provider is eligible to receive loan repayment, that can add significantly to the package as well (currently $25k each year for the first two years, $20k each years 3-4 and $10k each years 5-6). We can’t promise the loan repayment because it is a federal and/or state program, but historically those who have applied have received the awards. We prefer 5-year contracts, and often include one or two salary bumps scheduled into the contract. We will sometimes do 4 years or at the very least 3, but if a candidate is only willing to commit to 1 or 2 years we will probably not be interested.
