Are you the best of the best?

ECS is looking for the best of the best to join our growing partnership. We offer a comprehensive benefits package and excellent compensation. With an onboarding approach that includes new hire orientation and a mentor program, ECS will ensure that you immediately feel a part of the ECS team. Our culture offers an excellent work environment where we believe wholeheartedly in the work hard/play hard mentality.

Is ECS a good fit for you?

The place to start: What matters to you?

It’s as important to us to have the right fit as it is to you. Which is why we suggest you invest the time now to consider what really matters to you. One way to do that is to self-assess the following:

What does my ideal life look like?

  • Geographic
  • Community
  • Any other individuals you need to consider in your decision.
  • Cultural, educational, social opportunities

What does my ideal job look like? What is your approach regarding:

  • time off
  • shift load
  • money, finances, benefits
  • scheduling
  • decision making
  • corporate involvement
  • practice variability

What do you envision 5 years from now? 10 years from now? Beyond that?

Where you work and who you work with will have the biggest impact on your ability to live the life you want. It’s unlikely any position will provide 100% of your ideal and ECS is no different. Ask yourself, though, is there enough overlap with what you want? Never accept a position that doesn’t overlap significantly with your ideal! Answering these honestly will go a long way to easing some of the normal stress and uncertainty that goes with such life transitions. That makes for a better partnership for both you and for ECS.

At ECS, our goal is for you to be a full and equal shareholder/partner in about two years, without any financial buy-in. We believe this model provides the greatest level of engagement and satisfaction for you and ultimately, your patients. The variety of practice opportunities, from the ED’s that we serve to all of the other areas of acute care medicine we practice, are likely to have exactly what you’re looking for. And scheduling, for us, is paramount. With staff dedicated to customizing your schedule, we understand this has perhaps the largest impact on your ability to live the life you want.

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out this site, then get in touch with us and decide for yourself if ECS offers what it takes for you to live the life you want.
