That’s where the session “Don’t Get Fired, Don’t Go Broke, and Don’t Get Sued” comes in. Presenters Michael A. Granovsky, MD, CPC, FACEP, Mark Curato, DO, and Nathaniel S. Minnick, DO, will be part of an interactive panel discussion to address how to adapt quickly to a new practice environment, how to manage medical debt, and how to minimize the chances of a lawsuit.
For his part, Dr. Granovsky, of Logix Health in Bedford, Massachusetts, will cover key financial moves to help shore up your financial future. This will include pitfalls to avoid that could upset your financial trajectory, the management of student and mortgage debt, and making the right insurance choices as they relate to life and disability insurance.
“Emergency physicians have a bright financial future and the ability to retire with millions of dollars—if you make the right decisions,” Dr. Granovsky said.
Dr. Minnick, medical director of emergency medicine education at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News, Virginia, and assistant professor of emergency medicine at Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, will discuss methods advocated by risk managers, defense attorneys, and emergency physicians who have experienced lawsuits. He will also discuss resources to learn about risk. “Many training programs don’t provide enough risk education. ‘Don’t let go of the guidewire’ isn’t a risk education.”
When beginning a new job, you work hard to make a good impression. Dr. Curato, of St. Barnabas Health System in Bronx, New York, will cover tips, behaviors, and habits to help you successfully integrate into any new job and be regarded by your colleagues as a “great addition.”
