Bridgewater, NJ – They say in many professions you have to be a jack of all trades and a master of none, but in the field of Emergency Medicine, doctors have to do their best to be a master of all.

Emergency medicine is by its nature unscheduled care. Most first presentations of anything emergent or urgent, like a heart attack, stroke or severe abdominal pain, are typically first examined by an emergency medicine doctor in the sometimes frenzied location of a hospital Emergency Department.

Due to the unselected nature of patients and the limited time that can be spent with patients, many factors not under a physician’s control can affect the attitudes and even the clinical outcomes of patients.

It’s no wonder the majority of emergency physicians have been named in a claim for malpractice at least once.

Dr. Edward Gosselin is a board-certified residency trained Emergency Medicine physician, a graduate of Boston University School of Medicine and the founder of EMG Consulting & Contracting LLC. He has several decades of practice both clinically as well as administratively. He has been an Emergency Department director for 3 separate facilities. He also provides litigation support services and expert witness investigation and testimony in the field of Emergency Medicine for Consultations, Affidavits of Merit, depositions and trials.

To become an expert witness, you have to be an expert, and Dr. Gosselin has spent more than 30 years in emergency medicine and continues to practice.

“It's very hard to both be an expert witness in this field unless you continue to practice,” says Dr. Gosselin. “I have seen some doctors attempt to do this work soon after their residency, and although they may be board-certified with the full complement of education, they may not necessarily have the expertise or nuanced experience.”
