    Looking at ROS/Incentive Options

    Oh, and never sign a contract without talking to a lawyer.

    Looking at ROS/Incentive Options

    I know I've said this before, but a good resource is the Practice Management Seminars offered by MD Management. They talk about things like contracts, negotiating agreements, recruitment incentives, setting up practice, etc. At least, when I finished it was offered by MDM. It looks like it's being offered by the CMA directly now... https://joule.cma.ca/en/learn/practice-management-curriculum.html Snooping a little bit, it looks like they're going to be giving one to the Mac PGY-2s next Wednesday, and again on the 18th of December. Even though you're PGY-1, you've got a lot of things to consider, and it might be worth your while seeing if you can sneak into one of them this year.

    Speciality Closest to Derm

    I suggest you shadow a few internists ASAP.

    OHIP Billing

    What's the difference? $43.50 That and you have to spend 50 minutes with the patient, and provide all the elements of a consultation, to bill an A005. http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/ohip/sob/physserv/sob_master11062015.pdf
  7. No advice for you, just an off-topic question: What on earth is a "regenerative cannabis farm"?

    Saudi Arabia to relocate students from Canada

    I was amazed at how many surgical residents I heard say some variation of "The great thing about being post call is that I can stay in the hospital and operate!" They're a different breed, God bless 'em.
  9. I've been using Tarascon's Pharmacopeia since forever. Started out with the pocket book edition and am too set in my ways to change. App does everything I need, quickly. $50/yr. I tried RxTx (free from CMA) but didn't like it as much. https://joule.cma.ca/en/evidence/cps-online-and-rxtx-mobile-app.html
