The University of Florida Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research is located within a large facility spanning approximately 24,000 square feet and is divided into three areas in the Pavilion building on the UF Health Jacksonville campus. The Main Simulation and Conference/Instruction Area is a 7,000 square-foot area that was once a working hospital emergency department. The area is supported by an additional 800 square-foot conference and instructional area.

      Hey folks,
      I've been working in emergency medicine for about 1 year in a setting with a good mixture of high acuity and fastrack patients at a teaching institution. I've also worked during this time per diem at a low volume urgent care. While this has been an outstanding first job in terms of resume building and learning, it of course has the downside of wild hours, nights, weekends, holidays, etc. at a rather noncompetitive hourly rate/salary. I don't hate the job, but I also don't see myself doing emergency medicine forever. Or at least...not at this salary.
      For those who started in emergency medicine, what are your thoughts on transitioning to an urgent care job? I have heard some describe a miserable existence of patient volumes upwards of 60 patients a day, but I am guessing this is very dependent on the institution. Are there other specialties that make for a natural transition from emergency medicine? Am keeping all my options open at this point. Thanks!
