So I spent 4 years in the military as an EMT and then I separated to go to school. I am currently a volunteer EMT at my local fire station. My question is, I have a lot of direct patient care hours under my belt, would the clinical experience and fire/rescue be enough for ec's or should I shadow physicians too? Do adcoms favor shadowing multiple specialties? I have worked in family practice, allergy and immunizations, and then emergency care.
