NAEM Internal Culture
The diversity of our physicians’ backgrounds and the quality of their training make for a highly stimulating environment in which to practice. We strongly support ongoing education and we have a long history of taking leadership roles in organized medicine, at state and national levels. We encourage all physicians to participate in management meetings immediately upon joining the practice. Partnership is available after one year at a low buy-in. All physicians under the age of 62 share equally in “call” responsibility.
