“Is there a doctor on board?”

Emergency physicians may be trained to expect the unexpected, but what if your next patient is riding with you in an airplane?  To gain some insight into what happens during a medical emergency on board a commercial flight, we turned to Dr. JV Nable, assistant professor of EM at Georgetown University.  A link to his NEJM publication can be found here.

Sifting through hundreds of residency programs and deciding which ones to apply to can be a long, painful process.  If only there was an easily searchable and filterable directory of EM residency programs, free from commercial bias, that could be accessed from anywhere… oh wait there is!

EMRA Match is a beautifully designed, easy to use, powerful tool that lets you compare programs and find out what really matters to you.  For more details, check out our interview below with Dr. Zach Jarou and Dr. Adam Kellogg from the EMRA Match Task Force.
