On-Site Residency Program Overview
The on-site resident’s career seminar is a 3 ½ hour program designed to prepare graduating and
junior residents to approach job searching in an effective and successful manner. It consists of
Two to two ½ hour interactive workshop

Individual consulting sessions for graduates (or longer as time allows)

Presented originally at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC in 1995, the seminar was
repeated there nearly every year due to the outstanding response of the residents, until it became
too far to travel. The program is consistently the highest rated seminar of the academic year.
Similar reactions were reported with presentations at the following residency program sites, just
to name a few:
Richland Memorial Hospital, Columbia, SC
Baystate Medial Center, Springfield, MA
University of Connecticut/Hartford Hospital, Hartford, CT
Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA
Virginia College of Emergency Physicians
St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo, OH
CMU, Saginaw, MI
Carolinas Health Center, Charlotte, NC
Lehigh Valley Medical Center – Muhlenberg, Bethlehem, PA
UC San Francisco – San Francisco, CA
The seminar is presented by Barbara Katz, President of The Katz Company EMC, Inc. The
Katz Company is a nationally known Emergency Medicine Recruitment and Consulting firm
that was established in 2001.
An honorarium is customary for this seminar but no amount has been set, and that is left up to
what the individual residency program can afford. The honorarium is NOT required, but I do
ask that evaluations be taken and sent. All travel expenses and hotel accommodations are to be
covered by the residency program.

Read what they’re saying about Barb…
Barb Katz – fortune teller. Fire-eater, prophet, shoulder to cry on. Life coach – the “smart aunt” everyone needs in their life to navigate the perilous waters of ED recruitment. Amazing!
Barb was a phenomenal help, she really came through in a pinch and found us excellent docs. We wouldn’t consider using another recruiter.
I derived encouragement and confidence from our discussions!
