This is the Kick-Off for the Physician Informatics Jobs podcast.  I'm eager to bring you interviews with informatics physicians both new and seasoned.  I want to ask CI physicians how they got their first job and how they keep them.
Every informatician should be paid for what they do and I want this brings each of you closer to that goal.
