    I mostly feel bad for EM. Seems like such a garbage speciality these days. Occasionally you get to stabilize a crashing patient (must be super fun and rewarding) but otherwise it is dealing with frequent fliers, following algorithms and order sets, getting yelled at by consults, “supervising” the midlevels who are hollowing out the profession, etc.

     
    Funny. There was a point it was pretty competitive and the specialty those who wanted excitement went into. Not sure how much of that was driven by its depiction in TV shows of the day rather than the reality of ER practice.
