I am wondering if anyone else prefers more bread and butter EM rather than the fast-paced trauma situations. It's not that I can't handle the situation or get uncomfortable. I just don't care for the adrenaline rush. I really enjoy being in the ED and feel like I belong there. I like helping people with urgent-ish (and even not so urgent) problems. I also like the fact that I can help the poor, uninsured, marginalized members of society (I prefer it actually). I don't wait for the excitement of trauma though. I feel as though most people (at least on this forum) seem to like the opposite. It is the only reservation I have about EM, though I know there must be people that feel the same because SOMEONE has to work in all the EDs with less excitement. Anyone feel the same?
