Doogie311, if you don't mind, would you care to tell me a little about it? I recently received my EMT license so I am still a "rookie" to the field. I have a lot to see and learn and I plan to practice down in Princeton, NJ when I start my Freshman year. I am sure that I am going to become a doctor but I have my "phases" each year. I have been through my pulmonology, cardiology, and critical care phases already and I am currently very focused on Emergency Medicine. I like the adrenaline and unexpectedness of the field because I am a person who hates routine and gets bored easily. I just feel that Emergency Medicine suits me. I really want to know some downfalls. I've heard that it is patients who abuse the system by faking, "frequent flyers" etc. Is this what discouraged you or is there something else? Let me also mention that surgery has become a possibility because I love to dissect things (yea that may sound lame) and I am really really steady and good with my hands (not interested in Chiropractic care). However, I tend to feel ill when I stand for prolonged periods of time so that may rule out surgery.
