To all: It seems we're having more and more threads in which a poster new to emergency medicine visits our section of the forum and asks many of the same questions we all had at one time (e.g. which are the top programs; which are the best reading materials, etc. etc. etc.). I would ask the moderators: is there any way we could archive some of the most pertinent threads to a person wanting to go into our specialty, or make a "FAQs" link to such questions and their answers that we could provide? It would probably save everyone a lot of time and energy.
