The business of emergency medicine continues to become an even bigger area of focus for many emergency physicians. But with so many clinical and practice management skills to learn, it’s easy to skim over the administrative, legal, and reimbursement aspects of medicine.
Practice Essentials of Emergency Medicine is designed to augment your knowledge of several critical business topics.
Developed for physicians — by physicians — through a collaboration between the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA), Practice Essentials of Emergency Medicine distills the knowledge of top field experts into tangible, focused modules that learners can work through at their own pace.
This evolving curriculum will grow as learners’ needs — and the health care landscape — change over time.
