    Hey guys,

    Being that I have a serious interest in EM, are there any schools with particularly good realations with EM residencies that would increase my chance of a match down the line?

    Yeah, its nice to see you thinking this early about these things, but things might change by the time you are a 4th year applying. For instance, you might want to do Allo EM, or decide that Psychiatry is your true calling. If I were you, instead of looking to see what schools have good EM partnerships, look more at where you rotate w/ schools and which school gives you a more balanced 3rd and 4th year rotations. If you want to do EM in the end... Thats what your electives are for. DONT FORGET LOCATION IS ALWAYS KEY. Its all pretty much the same pain otherwise.

    I think Nova is really great for EM....

    For starters there is an excellent osteopathic EM residency with Mount Sinai hospital in Miami Beach. Although Mount Sinai itself is a Level II trauma center, it is a very busy ER and the residents train 3 months at University of Miami Ryder Trauma Center which is not only the major trauma center for South Florida but for most of the Caribbean nations as well.

    NSU has a plethora of hospitals at which you may spend your 3rd and 4th years on rotations. Four of these are Level I trauma centers with extremely busy ER's: Broward General and Memorial Regional (both in Broward County very close to school), Jackson Memorial (in Miami where UM students train), and Orlando Regional Medical Center (where UF and FSU students train). At both Broward General and Memorial you will also spend at least a month on trauma surgery rotation in your 3rd year (not sure about the other sites).

    Definitely lots of great options for anyone interested in EM or trauma! :thumbup:

    Is this new? I thought Christiana was the only one in the philly area with a EM/IM program?

    edit: Nevermind found the link, but how old is this? That rocks :horns:

    Having finished my residency and board certification in EM and having been involved in the selections process of medical student applicants for my residency program and being involved in hiring residency graduates for our hospital, I can tell you, that it all depends on your credentials (class rank/USMLE/COMLEX/ scores/SLORs/Deans letter) to get into a residency program…. Once you are done with residency your future and how much money you make will depend on your attitude/procedural skills/ patient satisfaction surveys (yes we all hate these)/and how involved you are administratively…..you might not like it but that is the way it is… I personally love my job.

    Someone told me that IM and FPs can work in the ER, is this true? They also said the reverse, ER docs can work in primary care?

    It is common for FP's to work in the ER in rural areas, where board certified EM physicians are not available. It is also very common for residents in any specialty to moonlight in the ER in these same settings.

    ER docs are often found in urgent care clinics, and can work in other areas, such as a primary care sports medicine clinic, if they have recieved the additional training.

    Since it is a major liability to have no EM certified physicians in the ED, you will very rarely find this in larger hospitals.

    Most commonly, you will find a combination of both EM physicians and other physicians, where there is a shortage.

    In hospitals that don't have staffing shortages, you typically only see EM physicians.
