So I'm pretty tired of EM bashing. I'm doing my IM rotations at the hospitals.... and responses to my answer of career choice is... "Emergency? Don't you like to think?" "Emergency? Aren't you too smart for that?" "Emergency? What the hell do you want to do that for?" "Emergency? Don't you like to take care of your patients?" This whole week I got crap from residents and attendings alike. I believe EM to be the most awesome job there could ever be! My response is who the hell doesn't?! Why would you want to follow Mrs. Soandso for SEVERAL days cause her H&H has dropped yet again...consult..bla bla write another boring ass progress note...how dreadful! ER docs are the only ones who are the most down to earth, cool, and can hold their own when the s%*t hits the fan. I'd like to see an IM doc or a specialist even handle a simple code, god bless their little "thinking hearts."
