Excellent Urology opportunity-suburban Pittsburgh
Specialty: Urology

Community hospital in the outlying suburbs of Pittsburgh is seeking two urologists to replace their retiring urologist that has been part of the medical staff for decades. Very generous salary guarantee for 2-3 years, but goal is to eventually merge the two with 2-3 other urologists in the area and be a partner in a 4-5 person urology group covering two hospitals af 170 and 250 beds. Sign-on bonus available and easily-attainable RVU bonus thresholds for a potential income of $550K in year one! This is a very progressive hospital and group that is committed to independence. Though many western PA hospitals have become aligned with the area's various academic institutions, that is something that will not happen here. So, if you're looking for a place with a blank slate where the sky is the limit with regard to what you can earn relative to how hard you work and being able to build your own practice the way you want, then this is an opportunity that should be explored.

There is limitless flexibility in this setting and the hopsital systems themselves could not be more stable. They are willing to consider anyone in the urology field so long as they're committed to continuing to practice full time. 2020 graduates are encouraged to apply but they'll also consider anyone in the midst or twilight of their career if they still have the drive to build a practice with the amazing potential that exists here. If a candidate has a desire for some sort of academic affiliation they could provide that with their ins to the academic institutions and could easily provide for a day or more per week to do research at a large teaching hospital or just whatever would work for someone's individual desires. Patient base is mostly adult, but if someone has a background in peds they could easily start and build a service as they have several pediatricians on staff.

They've recently purchased a robotics surgical unit and are spending the money to become state of the art in the surgical fields. If a candidate isn't trained in robotics but would like to be, they will happily send you to Atlanta to become trained and certified in it to take advantage of the incredible growth available with this opportunity. As far as the range and scope of urology work available, this is more than just a stone service. They're doing bladder reconstruction, nephrectomies, cyst removal, ureteral implants and lots of other things with the potential being just impossible to define. They just need the urologists in place and you can expect to be busy from the outset. First person in to start practicing will experience call of no worse than 1:3 and perhaps 1:4. When the group is at full capacity expect a favorable 1:5 call schedule and it will likely be done a week at a time (Mon-Fri) with only being called 2-3 times per week, which are often just consults.

The area is a great place to settle and raise a family or plan for retirement down the road. Lots of outdoor activities, tons of good restaurants and pro sports along with a favorable local economy. They can start someone as soon as they could get PA licensed and credentialed, but they can wait till next summer if need be for the right candidates.
