Anastasis said:I have heard many people talking about getting EMT certified to get clinical experience. What are people's experiences with that?
An ED-Tech/ER-Tech is generaly an EMT that works in the ED/ER. The difference? an ER-Tech works in the hospital and can have a slightly different scope (depending on state, county, ect...). An EMT in traditionaly Pre-Hospital (ambulance, ect...). Both offer great experience. If your looking for clinical experience go for the ER-Tech, that experience will be more relevent to medicine. If have more questions as the the specifics of the job I'd suggest a search of the forum or tossing Febrifuge some questions.Anastasis said:...mention of an ED Tech - or something like that. At the risk of revealing my ignorance - what is that? and what's the difference between that and being an EMT?
