    you have similar potential to make money in most subspecialities of PMR but your work hours are different.

    best hours are pain and EMG
    worse hours are inpt (including stroke and SCI)

    you have to also decide if you would prefer inpt vs Outpt practice. those are most important factors.

    remember, if you are smart, you will make money in any branch of medicine, so concentrate on interest.:clap:

    Most Electromyographers dont want to be paied per year since they could generatre more incom as independent contractors or if they get paied per case especially if they own the EMG machine.

    base salary will differ 10-20 K if you have ability to do EMG compare to if you dont. EMG board certification is nice to have
