What can you tell me about the EM residency at Palmetto General Hospital in Hileah, Fl? I am a second year getting ready to sit for the boards and I am very interested in EM, used to be a paramedic. Anyway, I am also very interested in moving to Fl for residency.

thanks

I am a third year and have done several months at PGH. There is no EM residency at PGH. They do have an internship that is tracked with the Mt. Sinai EM program therefore most interns that are accepted to the Mt. Sinai EM program complete their internship at PGH.

very far to the left
I interviewed there (Mt Sinai) a year ago. Seemed kind of thin on Peds, acute patients, trauma. The residency really rotates at 3 different hospitals, sometimes in the same month. When I asked the residnts if they were happy there and would recommend the program, they universally said "ummm...." Also, remember this will be a four (4) year experience.

Now, for perspective. 1. The hospital sits directly on the water. Look out the window from the ICU and see NaCl H2O. Pretty cool. 2. South Beach, where the bikini top goes south. JUST DOWN THE ROAD. Miami is a pretty cool city.

I'll respond to this thread prolly tomorrow, but at this time I am drinking a Miller Lite and enjoying my next two days off. But I second Chris_Topher's thoughts at this time.

Initially, as a DO student, I was all about going to a DO EM residency, as I thought it would be impossible for a DO to match into an MD program. So I had a great interest at Mt. Sinai.

Then, as a third year, I started hearing rumors about Mt. Sinai that were a bit unnerving. "They might lose accredidation soon." "Funding is an issue." "Your ass is scutted all day long." "There is little teaching."

Granted, those rumors were word of mouth only and I never sought to confirm what I heard... but indeed it raised an eyebrow.

Then, I applied for residency. I had originally planned to apply to both DO EM programs and MD... but after getting more than enough MD programs, I didn't even bother applying ot the DO programs, and threw away their applications.

Q, DO

Hello Quinn,
I have been reading alot of your post about EM. I wanted to know if there are possibilities for ER doc's to be self-employed (i.e. private practice) versus working for a hospital based service. I will be starting PCOM in the fall and EM is one of the specialties that I'm interested in pursuing.
Thanks,
Keith

Probably best to start a brand new thread about it and pose the question to the general SDN population, as you won't get much traffic in this thread and, well, I don't have much informationt o give you about your answer.

Beer (or three) first, then eat lunch. If you eat lunch then drink beer, you'll lose the buzz.

And before you ask, that rash of yours is NOT candida. Some people refer to it on the street as catching the "happies."

Doesn't anyone have any questions I CANNOT answer?!

Quinn,

When taking a piss, should you use your right or left hand? Does it make a difference? I've heard different people offer different opinions. What is the correct method?

Thanks,

'Tis a shame I can now no longer think Quinn with the old avatar.

That picture is nothing. You should have seen the pictures that he posted as "himself" on the boards a while ago. It was a picture of an attractive girl wearing lingerie, and half of the posts after it were posts telling him how "hot" he was. :laugh:

Is sitting really evidence based? I usually let someone else do the job, but when I have to do the work myself both hands is safer, more accurate, and not as labor intensive as earlier, limited studies indicated (ok, so a good mix of anecdotal and EBM there...)

Current literature reviews reveal that during extreme inebriated and ataxia due to LD50 doses of ethanol, it is best to use one hand to steady oneself against the wall, while the other (preferably dominant) hand controls pitch and yaw.

However, this article was printed in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association so it probably means nothing.
