Hi everyone, I am starting to have an interest in Emergency Medicine. Specifically Pediatric Emergency Medicine. At my school, they have a fellowship for it. From what i understand, i can be a Pediatrician, having gone through the 3 year residency for Peds; i can then do the fellowship? Or i can do the Emergency Medicine residency, and then do the fellowship? Is that right? If so what would be more beneficial? I enjoy Pediatrics, so thats why i sorta wanted to be a Pediatrician first. But then i volunteered in the Peds ER at my school, so....that threw everything out of whack..hehe. Loved it! Anyway, yea what do you guys think? Lastly, do any of you guys know if there are ER docs that do research, i may look into doing some research in that area. I would think they are very busy and won't have time to do research, but i could be wrong, as there seems to be a lot of "Assistant Professors" of Emergency Medicine running around the med center.
