Job Spotlight: Trauma Surgeon

ortho-trauma
Trauma surgeons generally work in and around the emergency rooms of hospitals, including both emergency departments and operating rooms. When an individual suffers a sudden injury, these surgeons are tasked with treating them and preventing injuries from worsening.

This can be a stressful position in a fast-paced environment, so it is important to be able to stay focused and work well under pressure. In addition to performing and overseeing operations, trauma surgeons also play a role in maintaining patients’ vital signs as they recover and occasionally making diagnoses to determine what sort of treatment, or referral to another specialist, is necessary. They also perform various exams and consultations.

Trauma Surgeon Salary

Trauma Surgeons in the United States can look forward to a sizeable six-figure salary — around $311K per year on average. Career length is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by geography. The majority of Trauma Surgeons (64 percent) who took the survey are women. Work is enjoyable for Trauma Surgeons, who typically claim high levels of job satisfaction. Medical benefits are awarded to nearly all, and a strong majority earn dental coverage.

700 Villagers Waded Through A Dead River, Cleansed It And Brought It Back To Life

se9cb-dead-river-restored-villagers-2

For decades the Kuttemperoor river in Alappuzha, India, slowly choked under the weight of rampant illegal sand mining and construction sites that dumped tons of sewage on its once-pristine banks. Fish and aquatic life were completely wiped out.

But not anymore. 700 villagers have spent weeks wading through toxic waste, algae and risking deadly water-borne diseases to physically de-silt and clean the river.

It wasn’t easy.  After two months of back-breaking effort, the results began to show. The river now brims with water, the stench is gone and children are playing on its green banks once more.

Various Signs Point To Wage Gains, Finally!

Various signs are pointing to wage acceleration finally, according to Bloomberg’s Jamrisco & Chandra. The number of people working part-time who would prefer full-time employment dropped to 5.27 million, a nine-year low. The number of discouraged workers, who aren’t looking for work because they believe no jobs are available, are near the lowest level since 2008.The employment cost index rose in the first quarter at the fastest pace since December 2007. “As long as the labor market is tightening as it has been recently, it’s a very safe bet that we’re going to see wages accelerate,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities LLC. U.S. Federal Reserve policy makers also are counting on wage growth to pick up.
