I'm curious about how many trauma cases people see while in medical school. The thought of seeing a lot of trauma cases does not excite me, and in fact somewhat disturbs me. I do not want to see tons of people who have massive injuries due to fires, car accidents, heavy machinery, gunshots, electrocutions, etc. This would particularly disturb me if the victim were a child. I realize that I will probably have to see SOME trauma cases, but I'd definitely like to avoid making a career out of it. For those of you who are doing your rotations or electives, what was your experience with regard to being exposed to trauma cases?
