1. OB volume. Per year and maybe weekly. How often do the providers come in at night to deliver (realistically how far can you live given OB call)? Does the CNM delivery and how does that work with oversight for her. I will have to request a report for specific OB volume. Most providers live within 20 minutes of the hospital. You have to expect to come in.
2. What is the GYN vs. OB volume, especially in clinic? is there any flexibility to making your schedule? We deliver more babies than any other hospital so our OB volume is high, but there is a good balance of GYN. There is plenty of GYN surgeries and we are now using the da Vinci to do some of them. You determine your template set up. Most providers see between 25-28 patients a day. Between the 7 providers, there is an average of 25 OB appointments a week for each provider.
3. Is the OB pool shared? Or is it that your patients are yours and then you get a call stipend? OB pool is shared. Patients establish with one provider and then rotate through everyone, whoever is on call delivers. There is no call stipend.
4. For OR cases - is it with a surgical assistant or do you operate with your partners? You operate with your partners as assistants.
5. Salary and RVU targets
7. Call schedule Call schedule is published monthly. It’s call usually one day a week and one weekend every 6-8 weeks. It is on a rotation and weekends are shared with other groups.
8. What can our involvement be with the family medicine program? Medical students and residents (as well as PA and NP) students rotate through the OBGYN offices with each of the providers.
9. Office and staff turnover We see close to 150 patients a day. We now have two offices as well as the hospital with growing patient volumes that our providers rotate through once a week. Most of our nurses in Women’s Health have been there 20+ years with a few excepts.
10. Do you get your own MA or is it a rotation pool of MAs? We typically hire LPNs, and each provider has their own for the most part. As we’re growing, there is some dual coverage as the patient volume is low at first for new providers. The nurses are great about learning all the providers so they can help and work together to keep patients moving.
