NEW EM INTERN ORIENTATION AGENDA
July 2, 2018
Dr. Mesisca is looking for an admin fellow to work after graduation at Kaiser Moreno Valley and RUHS and spend time learning how to recruit and build physician and PA teams, improve ED operations and efficiency, work with hospital administration and consulting services on throughput collaboratives, attend regional trauma and EMS meetings, learn to manage site finances with understanding of billing and contract negotiations. This is one year commitment sponsored by CEP America (now called Vituity). Most fellows go on to become Assistant Medical or Medical Directors.
For EM residents interested in an EM administration elective at RUHS please inquire with Dr. Mesisca.
