General Comments
Additional Information:
· Shifts (starting and ending): Monday- Friday 8a- 4:30p
· Must have experience – (willing to cross train?)- Transplant experience is a huge plus, but will consider without exp for the right candidate. With less experience would start with running application/ resume past with the hiring manager first. Generally with start with a screening call with the hiring manager. The liver coordinator will be responsible for learning all aspects of transplant coordination including pre and post care.
· Each coordinator covers 20 active evaluation patients at a time + 50 wait list patient typically.

On call? Frequency of on call? On call Pay? On call would be 1 to 2 weeks a month and on call work is 99% completed at home if not during normal working hours and consists of organ call offers (this aspect may be going away shortly but I don’t have anything final on that yet) and post liver triage. I would say that on average less than 25% of on call time is spent working. $3.50 an hour for on call.

SIGN ON : $10,000 (2 year commitment) or $15,000 (3 year commitment)
Relo: Yes, available (with CFO approval)- 100-500 miles= $2,500 and 500 miles += $5,000
Shift Diffs: Really applicable to on call rates, but nights $4.50 an hour and weekends $1.50 an hour.
