certified diabetic educator (CDE) certification - lucrative or not? My manager approached me today to excitedly inform me that she suggested me when a diabetes rep came in and mentioned her company will provide free CDE training for a provider in our office. I do really like endocrinology but don't want to work in Endo due to the lower salaries (kind of burnt out right now on long hours and low compensation as it is in family med). I'm trying to read between the lines and see if this is something that would actually benefit me or only benefit the hospital and my workplace. I have a very busy patient schedule and family medicine and work long days and already feel quite underpaid. I like many aspects of family medicine but that one is not one of them. I guess I'm a little bit worried that if I do this training I will have an increased workload but really nothing financially to show for that. Has anyone out there done this? Worth it or not? I kind of feel like this would be something for a nurse and not something that will be financially beneficial for a physician assistant's career. Huge thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some advice or perspective on this.
