*Top cases are Orthopedic, OBGYN, and then General Surgery in that order. *Average earnings - $450k depending on how much you want to work. *Shared weekday and weekend call. OR slots for elective surgeries then call can be taken from home. Weekend call can be once per month, and the current providers usually take either weekday (2 days per week) or weekend call not both in the same week. OB call is most prominent of course.Also, the payments are done somewhere around 3rd week of following month. Example, the June paychecks will be out in 3rd week of July. This is because our billing company needs time to compile all the information after all the providers have submitted their billings. The new physician will be paid $35.00 per unit value for first one year. The providers make on an average of 900 to 1100 units per month. Some provider who take extra call will take home 1200 to 1400 units a month. 1. Main OR call gets 20 units per call. (Busiest lineup)2. OB call gets 40 units per call.3. We have a short call (we call it 2nd call) on Saturday (0700 to 1500) for which we pay 10 units and the chance of getting called in is not very often.4-6 weeks of vacation is allowed and is not paid. We do not pay for malpractice or health insurance or any other benefits.After one year, there will be a raise in the unit value to $37.50. We may raise the unit value in 3rd year but my hospital contract renews every two years. All call are from home i.e. no in-house call. Once work is done, we go home.
