Our employees are rewarded for going above and beyond with giveaways and incentives. Employees are given the opportunity to have their voices heard by submitting ideas for improvements and winning prizes for the best ones chosen.  These have included cash gifts, gift cards, and theater and sporting events tickets.  A privilege of office tenure is a chance to work from home one day a week.


We believe work should be about more than just earning a paycheck.  EMA hosts two annual social events for all employees: a Family Picnic and a Practice Gala.  Further, the office staff is treated to quarterly lunches, bi-weekly breakfasts and ice cream socials.  On special occasions during the workday, events such as the World Cup or Olympics are televised in the office for the staff to watch together.  Special events for the EMA clinical team have included: wine and beer tastings, tubing, cooking classes, limo scavenger hunts, Capitals games and Wizards games. 

We promote employee wellness.  This has included giving away free gym memberships and pedometers to our employees.  EMA clinicians offer office staff educational talks, on matters related to healthcare.  Recent talks have focused on Ebola and meningitis.  Birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated in the employee newspaper and the TV in the office break room displays pictures taken at work and at the company’s various social events.  Instead of purchasing wall art for office décor, employees were given the chance to submit their own photography.  The hallways are adorned with professionally framed art from the staff.

    I work with a great group of doctors, and my boss is great.


    Too much travel. Not a lot of work life balance.

    Anonymous Employee in Germantown, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Emergency Medicine Associates (Germantown, MD) in May 2016.


    I was referred to EMA by a current employee (one of my friends) and my interview consisted of a 15-minute phone call. Rather than standard interview questions, we discussed my availability and wages.
