EM Match Advice: Is Emergency Medicine right for you?

2017-05-08T18:25:49+00:00

In this tenth installment of the EM Match Advice series, we go back to the beginning. As a medical student, how does one know if emergency medicine is the right career choice? Is it all guts, glory, and excitement? Are ONLY working 28 hours per week? Listen to this fascinating discussion with our panelists, facilitated by Dr. Michael Gisondi (EM Program Director at Northwestern). The panelists include Dr. Michele Dorfsman (PD at University of Pittsburg), Dr. Brian Levine (PD at Christiana Care), Dr. Larissa Velez (PD at UT Southwestern), and Dr. Michelle Lin (ALiEM/UCSF).

Edited podcast version

Questions that we tackle include:

  • Why did YOU decide to go into EM?
  • What are some stereotypes and myths about the EM career?
