EM Match Advice is back with its last installment before the Rank Order List deadline (February 21), and puts the focus on county residency programs! In this episode, an esteemed panel peels back the curtain on what it means to work and train in some of the busiest public Emergency Departments in the United States. These programs share a special brand of team-centered training, and residents learn how to make the most of limited resources while caring for patients who are also often resource-poor. This incredible egalitarian spirit shines through in the discussion, hosted by Dr. Michael Gisondi. Watch the video Google Hangout or listen to the Soundcloud podcast to learn more about what it means to be “county.”
