Hi! I’m Nate, a third-year medical student, and I plan to go into emergency medicine.
When you get to medical school, you’ll quickly find out that every specialty, from family medicine to neurosurgery, has stereotypes. Often these are unfair, but most have a grain (or two) of truth to them. The stereotype for EM doctors is that they are “jack-of-all trades” with a short attention span and a love of procedures.
