Not going to say the hospital of course, but was told this was the minimum salary for Med tech with no experience.
This is in Michigan. Would you say that is above average?

Thanks.

Also wanted to add that with 8% shift differential included for the pay would actually be $26.45 an hour. That works out to
roughly 51,000 a year.

Can't you buy a 2 bedroom house in Michigan for like $80,000? Adjusted for cost of living thats very good--about as good as you'll get in the USA (second to perhaps sacramento CA where housing is cheap and new grads start ~30/hr). If you work 40 hour weeks it should actually be more like 54k a year as well :-).

Michigan is a good state with license requirements.

If you are from NJ you would crap yourself if you saw how nice of a house you could get here for 80K.

Also to clinical intern, im also for SE, MI and planning to do an internship in the future. So you have any tips with internships and how to prepare yourself? how are the mls classes in the internships? thank you for any response, i think that talking to interns and current workers is way more helpful than talking to the professors
