My grades are average, step 1 is below average, step 2 is slightly above average. Doing an internship over the next year at a small program that has a EM residency. There's an excellent chance that I could get a position without too much begging and sexual favors. The hospital does not do trauma, all trauma rotations are away at adjacent Universities. I'm trying to decide if I should take this position, make the absolute best of it and the away rotations and just get my ass out in the work force or I should go through the pain, torture, expense, gut-wrenching disappointment of the match(es) next year. What bare minimum stuff in your minds should a EM program have to at least provide a adequate/sufficient education... One item that seems obvious is high Serious comments welcome. Thank you.
