The goal of the Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) of the Medical Society of Delaware (MSD) is to provide Delaware residents & fellows with an awareness of MSD activities within the medical community, and provide an opportunity for engagement in those activities.
In addition, MSD can help as you complete your training and navigate the early years of your medical career. We offer several useful resources to member residents and fellows including:
Resources for making your employment connection. Health Careers Connect connects you directly with companies recruiting within the health care field. It is a web-based employment service for job seekers and employers for which MSD members are provided a significant discount. Offers can be found or made on a national or local level and everything is kept confidential.
Resources to help you negotiate your first contract. MSD members have access to MSD’s legal counsel and are provided one free legal consultation annually to answer questions, help direct, or give assurance regarding legal issues. Continued assistance is offered at a significant discount.
Resources to manage your finances. MSD has relationships with several local banks and financial planning companies who would be happy to provide you with the information you need to start your career on the right financial foot.
Resources providing access to all your necessary insurances. Medical Society of Delaware Insurance Services, Inc. (MSDIS) provides accessibility and affordability. MSDIS is one of the largest insurance brokerage operations in Delaware offering physicians access to Medical Malpractice, Health Insurance, Life Insurance, Pension Plans, Liability Insurance, Disability Insurance, Personal Insurance, Dental Plans, and Workers’ Compensation coverage.
Resources to open your private practice. Our Physician Relations Department can provide a wealth of information and guidance to assist you should you decide to step out on your own.
Additional RFS benefits include:
22% savings provided to MSD members on services through Verizon Wireless. Members are also afforded a 25% discount on accessories. These discounts apply to both personal AND practice needs.
Speaker Services: Would you like to arrange for an MSD presentation at your hospital? Scheduling an MSD speaker is a great way to help residents at your institution learn more about what’s going on in health care today and the business of medicine. Our staff is well versed in a variety of topics such as health care reform, student debt, work/life balance, getting involved in organized medicine and much more.
