EP 115: The 5 Truths of Emergency Medicine

It’s disheartening when we speak to an ER Doc that is freshly aware or surprised by something they’re dealing with in EM. This goes for inexperienced and experienced ER Docs alike. The thing is: negatives can be turned into a positive when embraced and accepted. As the Special Ops of medicine, if there’s anyone that can handle harsh realities, and manage them, it’s ER Docs.

In today’s episode, we’ll discuss, from our perspective, five truths of working in EM – some financial and others not. With the New Year upon us, we thought it would be a great time to remind our listeners to focus on the positives and set a good mindset heading into 2023.
