  1. Probably 60-100hr/week. I mean if I work 50 hrs of office then go do a 48hr rural ER shift there is the 98 hrs lol. Usually closer to 60-70 though.
  2. I did not factor in the northern rural and retention program into my gross billings because it is deposited into my personal account not the corporate account - so that $40k in first year of practice went into my personal account not to the corporate account. Sure urban doctors can make as much but big city family docs tend to only do office practice with no hospitalist. Often IM or a specific hospitalist service covers inpatients. Also ER is done by full time ER docs so there is not much opportunity for 'only' family physicians to participate in ER. Lucky where I live, it is a small city and
  3. Yes I have overhead of a secretary who gets paid $52k/yr, part time nurse $21k/yr, rent $9000/yr, everything is quite marginal. My community is in a city so it is not remote or rural, just northern. You don't need the extra training for ER in rural community but I would highly recommend a keen interest in ER during family med and additional courses. You would be better prepared for ER if you had the +1, and full disclosure I applied to the +1, interviewed at two sites, made it to the final interview but didn't get a spot. So I wanted the extra training. But being an ER keener I do feel I conti
  4. I haven't been active on this forum for a number of years now. Now two years out from family medicine graduation and I can tell you life improves significantly from medical school and residency. Don't think for a second that life slows down unless you want to coast in a part time fashion. People are always interested in money but people never want to talk about it. For those people that are worried about not making enough money as a family doctor I can reassure you with the fact that if you want to work your guts out that you can earn plenty ... I grossed $647k last year and I'll be
  5. There is no way to know what happens within the black box of residency admission, CCFP-EM admissions or otherwise, we can only speculate. My main FM site is a community hospital, non-rural, but I ensured that I had a mixture of tertiary care exposures for both experience and reference building as well as rural emerg experiences which had me doing 24 hour shifts and being first call to go in if an overnight call came in .... yes that rural that the EM doc could go home for the night. Value in a variety of experiences. Many of the academic center EM docs recommend that career EM docs do some rur
  6. Havent heard either ... I just chocked it up as a regret as they would be quite interested in contacting interviewees. Would be nice to have that closure of a regret - as Ive checked my junk mail every day since Oct 10th.
  7. The programs are sure taking their time today .... obviously some school dont contact rejectees, however some do and Im waiting for something , anything impatiently.
  8. When did Memorial send out emails? On their program description they state they contact all applicants. Did they do a wave of rejections or acceptances now? probably rest Tuesday?
  9. I only heard from Queens, Sask, and NOSM myself. I guess we'll get the rest after the long weekend.
  10. Welcome BIM18. Thanks for joining and posting! Beef
