Personnel Payroll System: payroll system used by UC campuses, designed and updated by the Office of the President. PPS holds payroll, benefits data, and leave accrual.
Personnel Placement Service. Conducted during the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting (December), this service provides opportunities to interview for residencies and employment positions. Many residency programs use the PPS for preliminary applicant screening/interviews. This is more common among specialized residencies, as these programs do not participate in the Resident Matching Program.
"Pay Per Signup" - One of the payment programs offered by many sponsors. You get paid a set rate, like $30, for every signup you send, regardless of how long the surfer remains a member. The payout is usually $5-$10 less if you send your surfers to console free tours, since without the consoles the sponsor has fewer opportunities to recoup the flat rate they pay you for every signup.
