Hello all...I just wanted to know if ER medicine is considered a part of primary care (along with Peds, internal medicine, Ob/Gyn; am I missing any?)? Thanks!

I've not seen EM included as primary care, even though much of the scope of their practice is "primary-care-type" medicine.

yes......in the state of kansas it is considered primary care. ER is very much primary care with occasional true emergencies.
