I agree. This is BAD. Insulting! To give everyone a perspective how how far and how low we've come as primary care providers (Peds, FP, IM, Psych): my friend, a cardiothoracic surgical PA, 1st year out of PA school makes $120,000, with full government benefits--comparable to area PCP salary in this big city.

this is bad, bad, bad - there are nurses (okay, can't compare, they are in demand, and I'm taking about the SF Bay area, etc.) that make $60/hour or so. If I were to accept that low-balled hourly rate, I would NEVER agree to overhead whatsoever. How pathetic that while tuition costs have doubled over the past 15 years (and life in general), the hourly FP/Peds/IM/Psych "rate" is the same as it was 15 years ago.
