Greetings, all, I am turning to my favorite board for input - thought of adding to Joelcorley's thread on "I quit!" but did not want to hijack it. I have posted very little here so far about what has been evolving at work but now things are reaching a fever pitch and I need some real help. My livelihood is threatened, but that seems a smaller issue in certain ways than does the outcome of what is likely to happen next and how limited my future options may be in the inbred world of medicine locally. For anyone who has read of my efforts to revolve student debt, I have enough savings to pay off the remainder of what I owe before next June so no worries that I will be caught short holding a high balance on a 0% credit card! I'd rather not dip into savings but, believe me, I WILL if I must. The other obvious worry is how to cover health insurance costs should I elect to become unemployed (or if it is elected for me) - I know all about COBRA, but like all other Americans who may not have a spouse whose insurance covers them, this is a pretty expensive hit. Fortune favors the prepared but I can't say I've been fully prepared for THIS circumstance.

I posted the current sad saga here on the "Physicians and Other Professionals" board. In reference to EMR in my post, this stands for "Electronic Medical Record" and refers to documenting and coding patient visits electronically (as opposed to on paper, how it has been done for decades). I've been at the mercy of a very user-unfriendly interface which has slowed me down to a crawl. Anyway, here is the link:

I appreciate all comments but especially the gentler ones since I feel pretty raw about how this has shaped up. I'll probably cross-post this to the "Ask the Headhunter" board because the handwriting is all over the wall, and I am not personally accustomed to career developments akin to this. Thanks, dear Fools, for your anticipated input, especially those with happy endings!
