My EM Residency Experience...

"In addition to providing my personal experiences, thoughts, and reflections as I go through the residency, I've decided to share a bit of the most important practical medical knowledge I learn at each rotation. My motivation for doing this goes back to the days before PA graduation when I read through the residency blogs like this. I'd see posts like "my cardiology rotation was a great experience... I learned the most important 'take-away' knowledge like how to do a focused cardiovascular HnP, interpret troponin elevation, etc". They'd just mention these things and I'd always yearn to hear them fleshed out, straight from the person's mouth instead of the dry textbook that never seems to be entirely clinically relevant. So, I am going to try to do just that. I'll list out the most important topics I learn and I'll try my best to actually go into the some of the important details underlying them. I'll make sure to focus on the things that were emphasized to me by my attendings and real world experiences. Last, I'll try to share some of the best resources I encounter as I my program immerses me in the world of EM. "
