Maybe it only happens out in the sticks... Maybe it only happens in huge trauma centers... Maybe it's only people who grandfathered into EM board certification... I just know that some ER docs work only three 8hr shifts a week, and I wonder if anesthesia can set you up to do that. I've heard FP folks in the ER make half of what board certified EM docs make per hour...I guess gas guys would be in the same boat. Any thoughts? Any knowledge? It would make me feel a lot better knowing I could segueway there if the OR ever got to stuffy... Would retraining be difficult b/c you would not be funded for a second residency?
