Working with EPA as a resident has allowed me to broaden my educational experiences by working in small town emergency departments in Iowa. Through these opportunities, I have gained a greater degree of confidence for disease recognition and treatment. These experiences and the skills gained will serve me well when I join a rural primary care clinic this summer.

When I was in my family practice residency, moonlighting gave me valuable experience. It helped me gain confidence in my clinical skills, and it helped me learn how to manage patient flow in a busy emergency department. (The extra income was also nice.)
I enjoyed family practice but due to a family situation and time demands I made the switch to full time emergency practice almost six years ago. I gained more control over my time while still retaining the kind of practice I enjoy. Working in small communities has the feel of family practice because I work with the same colleagues and I often know the patients I see in the emergency department.
Moonlighting is great for experience and it is an opportunity to consider full time emergency practice as a career option for you.

I have really enjoyed working with EPA. I have had experiences with several different ER staffing companies and EPA has by far been the best at meeting my needs. They have a wide variety of opportunities from low to high volume ERs. As a resident in training it has helped me to develop my acute care skills and has given me increased opportunities to perform invasive procedures and manage critically ill patients. The pay is very reasonable and exceeds their competitors. One of the things that I appreciate the most is that I don’t feel pressured all the time to pick up extra shifts that would take me away from my family. I look forward to continuing to work with EPA in the future as I complete residency and go on into private practice.

Residency is a time of exponential learning and how better to supplement this learning then by moonlighting and applying everything you learn to real-world patient care. With my personal interests in urgent care - emergency medicine, I am able to further expand my scope of education and clinical experience with EPA. Their courteous staff has a genuine understanding of "the resident" schedule, and truly work with the resident in scheduling hours that best fit our busy schedule. With multiple locations and friendly ER staff, EPA offers excellent clinical opportunities that challenge me as a physician and makes transition to real life practice a wonderful experience.
