Ive read some of the old threads on peds ER and had a couple more questions. How common/competitive are peds ER programs? What are the hours and pay like for peds ER, especially in comparison to other ER programs? Is there are demand for peds EPs? Are they generally considered a branch of pediatrics, or a part of ER (I know that there are different paths to becoming a peds EP, but is the department autonomous, part of ER, or part of peds?) What are the differences in the kinds of disorders you generally treat? What are the advantages/disadvantages to peds ER versus ER or peds? Id really appreciate any replies! Thanks in advance!
