Life is full of tough decisions. You’d love to settle in a small, comfortable town in the mountains. But you want to make the most of your career, with access to the state-of-the-art technology typically reserved for major metros. If it seems you’ve got to sacrifice one for the other, then we’ve got exciting news for you.
United Hospital Center (UHC) in Bridgeport, West Virginia, is looking for a general urologist. Fellowship training in robotics or endourology/stones would be a great plus. At UHC, you’ll have access to technology that is the envy of even some large-metro hospitals, including a da Vinci Xi, UroLift, Blue Light Cystoscopy, and MRI Fusion biopsy.
Join two other urologists and four PAs for a base salary that is always guaranteed. UHC puts you at the 90th percentile for earning potential. Start at $500K–$550K for your first 2 to 3.5 years. A strong RVU reimbursement will keep your earnings high, and you’ll also be paid for RVUs in collaboration with PAs. Production bonuses are paid semi-annually. A stipend is available to physicians still in training, and educational loans are repaid in one lump sum.
UHC’s new urologist can also look forward to
- A $30K+ signing bonus
- $6K–$8K CME allowance
- Call made light by a strong hospitalist program
- Mentorship from a transparent lead urologist who prioritizes commitment to patients
- Robotic mentorship from fellowship-trained general surgeons
- Free tuition for your children at West Virginia University after 5 years with UHC
