3 questions about emergency med. 1. For the FRCPC program, how many allow moonlighting? Is it common? How much do residents make generally doing it? (and how many hours do they work, given other duties) 2. Where is it possible to practice full time emergency medicine without the +1 in em? (in Ontario specifically). Wondering about non-rural locations e.g. small cities / suburbs? 3. If an emerg doc gets burned out, what are possible avenues to a 9-5?
I am really having a hard time ranking the family sites, I keep rearranging my top 10 esp with mac, Ufot, and Queen's sites! Would somebody be able to comment on their experiences at any particular sites for those schools such as - Queen's Oshawa and/or Peterborough site! The presentations were amazing, especially Oshawa! - Mac's peripheral sites like Niagra, Halton, Kitchener-waterloo etc. - UofT's newmarket and Barrie, and some GTA non-downtown sites If anybody has any insight or could speak to their experiences in terms of learning to service ratio, customizability, calls, the city/town etc. I would really appreciate some help with ranking (and probably others in this forum that are also in the same boat!) Thanks so much!
I am hoping to get some tips from the more financially savvy residents or staff, for those of us that’ll be graduating soon. As a graduating R2, I have been getting few offers for locuming, partnering and salaried positions. The main two that I am considering is a semi-permanent locuming position (6-8mos) vs a salaried hospital position. My main question is how to compare an office based gig (as new grad I’ll probably see 4-5 pts/hr so I’d guess around $130-140/hr income with 25% overhead) vs a hospital salary based position that probably comes to something around $115/hr but comes with health benefits and pension (I am still waiting to get the full package for details on remuneration). I know that there are opportunities for added income in the clinic with the occasional more lucrative chronic disease/annual exam/etc billing codes as well as some private billings, and of course there is the opportunity for incorporation in private practice. I am wondering about the cost of not being able to incorporate as a hospital employee, and if it’d be generally balanced out by the benefits/pension plan that one would get? Thanks guys!
