Welcome to The Business of Emergency Medicine!
Karan and I created this website because we wanted to share our efforts and knowledge with our fellow emergency medicine doctors and future doctors. We both went through medical school and residency and learned how to take care of the dislocated shoulder, the atrial fibrillation with RVR and the myriad of other medical problems but no one ever really taught us about the business of emergency medicine.
Towards the end of our residency, we started looking for jobs like most other residents. We quickly learned that it wasn’t as simple as lets work for Hospital A or Group B. We had to learn about being an independent contractor versus and an employee as well as what RVUs are and how to bill! We also realized that our fellow residents and colleagues at other institutions had the same questions too.
We’re taking our knowledge and effort and sharing it with you. Please check back frequently for new articles that help everyone from the medical student interested in emergency medicine to the attending that has been an EM doctor for the past 20 years.
Thank you for stopping by!
