What EMA Offers Physicians


Mission Statement: 

Emergency Medical Associates (EMA) is a group of physicians supported by exceptional solutions for the measurable success of our hospital partners.
EMA strives to provide the optimal business model for emergency physicians, including:

  • A stimulating professional environment
  • Professional independence
  • Financial security

Since 1977, EMA has offered opportunities for all physicians to participate in the group’s decision-making process. This has enabled us to attract and retain quality career emergency physicians and long-term hospital clients, leading in turn to outstanding tenured work opportunities and business success.  
As an EMA employee, you will join approximately 400 physicians who provide exceptional patient care services in more than 30 emergency departments.  EMA offers a wide variety of practice opportunities ranging from community hospitals to trauma centers and teaching institutions.

Information About Our Elite Staffing Support Team


EMA’s data driven system allows us to optimize productivity, efficiency and collections at each site, resulting in highly competitive physician compensation for our physicians. Our performance-based compensation programs also offers opportunity for additional compensation.
EMA provides one of the most comprehensive benefits plans, including health, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance. Malpractice insurance is also provided for all physicians.



EMA supports the professional development of the entire ED team (physicians, associate practitioners, nurses, and the administrative staff) through a variety of robust CME courses, seminars, and educational conferences on pertinent issues to keep our clinicians abreast of industry regulations and trends. Educational programs are provided in both standard on and off-site formats in addition to web-based formats.
Opportunities are available for growth and development. This includes opportunities such as Regional Vice Presidents, ED Directors, Associate Directors and EMS Directors, as well as academic appointments at our teaching institutions. Corporate committee participation provides a training ground for future posts in the career progression of our physicians. In addition, EMA supports our physicians in holding leadership roles in national, regional and local professional societies, such as ACEP, SAEM, AAEM, ACOEP and state chapters and associations.
