I was curious as to the percentage of students in your schools' classes going into Emergency Medicine. Out of 200 in my class, I know for sure that 11 applied to EM (a couple of them also applied to a few back up programs). I have been surprised that at least 22 in my class are applying to Radiology (and possibly less than that for Internal Medicine). While interviewing in Cali, I spoke to applicants there who stated that they knew of 20 to 40 EM applicants in their respective schools (USC, UCLA, UCSF). I was curious to how many people were applying to EM from your class.

I spanned two classes as I took time off during my 3rd year.

My first class had about 6 people go into EM out of 210 or so. about 35 went into gas and 30 into radiology. the rest was the rest of the stuff.

In the class I graduated with there were 190 and 6 or 7 went into EM. I don't know about the rest of the stuff.

Out of my class of ~190 DO students, about ~7 of us went into EM, myself and one other person went to MD programs, the rest to DO programs.

Q, DO

my class was recently polled about our interests at this point. Out of about 44 who turned in their polls (we have 89) when I saw the data, 7 listed EM as 1st choice. (the same # who put family)

5 out of 47 at my campus.

BTW - we have 9 going into Rads.

This is compared to ~5 per year going into EM and Rads combined.

Here's the funny part, our school has a mandate to train primary care providers (they don't count EM as primary care). The only residency here is FP and we have little to no contact with those residents. The rads and EM rotations here are weak, and often slammed on student feedback evaluations. Most everyone going into these fields does them elsewhere and avoids the home rotation (niether is mandatory).

I guess my class is filled with rebels!!! :clap:

i'm not going EM, but i peruse this forum because i may have an interest down the road in peds ER or peds ICU, and because i'm good friends with kungfufishing and like to harass him.

anyway, we have a class of about 90, and the word on the street is we'll have probably 5-7 go EM. we'll have the official stats later after the match.

In third year/beginning of fourth year, many of my classmates (10/70) wanted EM. As they went through their rotations, some chose medicine, surgery, etc. 5/70 went for EM in the match, and only 3 actually matched in EM.

6 have applied to EM (all only interviewed for EM)
1 has already matched for military EM

I wish I had already matched (hopefully I won't still be saying this after the 18th)

Out of 130, we had about 6-8 people applying to American, Canadian, and Quebecois residencies. There are also another 5-10 on top of that who will do a 2 year FP residency, then a 1 year EM fellowship.

Our school has averaged 10-12 out of ~200 for at least the last 4 years.

The new Academic Emergency Medicine (March 2004 Vol 11, No. 3, page 285) has a commentary entitled "The Next Frontier: Mendical Student Education."

They mentioned 2% of US med students entered EM in 1987 and 6.4% in 2002.

Good luck everybody on the upcoming days!
