My prior post was about, Choosing Your First Job. Before we move on to Physician Contracts, I think it’s important to talk about Malpractice Insurance. Physicians in general dislike talking about this because we don’t like to think about the possibility of being sued. For the most part, this is covered during residency under your institutional policy, which is almost always occurrence meaning that you don’t have to worry about it. However, now that you are […]

Malpractice Insurance

Umbrella insurance is “non-occupation” liability. Occupation-liability (in our case) would be your malpractice insurance. I didn’t really discuss Umbrella Insurance as a necessity because for most residents and young attendings it isn’t really necessary yet as it falls into more of the “asset protection” category.

Trust […]

It is brushed off into the “I’ll get to it later” pile of things to do. I hope this article reaches more residents so that they will be aware of just how important insurance is for […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. It’s about that time again… the Match has come and gone. Let’s talk about “Preparing for Residency”. Preparing for Residency To be perfectly honest, this is kind of a lazy post on my part since it is kind of rehash of multiple prior posts. However, the Match happens every year and every year there are new 4th years medical students who will be starting their residency. For that reason, […]
