SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) When I went home over spring break, I talked with an attending at the ED that I volunteered at. He mentioned that with over a 1,000 EM spots a year, the market is going to be quickly saturated. The number of EDs is remaining fairly constant. What are some of you upperclassmen and residents hearing? It makes sense that with a finite number of EDs, it only takes so many spots to staff them. Do you think they should lower the number of residency spots?
