    Hey there,
    From what I gather in talking informally with colleagues, EPs are not very sought after for non clinical jobs aside from hospital admin (as we are hospital docs).
    Anyone into, or know anyone, who has a successful non clinical career either part or full time?

    Some people go into research working for Pharma. Less money, better hours, probably better perks.

    I know of number of emergency med physicians who have ventured into successful entrepreneurial projects. Some have developed the forms/systems that you now use in the ER. Others have created medical apps like iTriage. Some are running companies like ERLink. I know one ER doc who's an international health consultant and he works part-time in the ER.

    EM is a great specialty because you can continue some clinical work while you pursue these ventures on the side.
