re: Do ER doctors earn a lot compared to other drs? - studentforlife
Given the small numbers, I decided to look at 2019 as well just to see if there was a ton of variability. In general, things only changed a percentage point or 2. Here are the 2019 numbers for Step 1 and Step 2 scores >259. Anesthesia 3.9% Child Neuro 0.4% Derm 6.2% Emergency Med 6.6% F...

[quote]EM had 2212 matches Dermatology had 480 matches Pediatrics had 2661 matches How can you compare the three?[/quote] Once again, we are discussing what specialty the highest ranked applicants choose. You seem to think how many other people match into that specialty is relevant, but it i...

[quote]So why couldn't you use the scores from last year and use the average step 1 and 2 score being they are available? Also let's go to above 259 average on both. [/quote] Man you are really bad at this. I guess I'll try again. The numbers you listed appear to be from this site [link=(https:/...

[quote]You are still wrong, geez I sure hope I never end up in an ED with you or "Your ED" if you can't understand statics aren't on your side. How can other subspecialties have a higher average if lower ranked applicants are being accepted? How about you dumb it down alittle more for us ignorant an...

re: Do ER doctors earn a lot compared to other drs? - studentforlife
[quote]If you are referring to 2020 your numbers are far off. EM had an average matched score of 231 versus a higher ranked subspecialty orthopedic surgery which was 245, according to the national residency matching program. [/quote] Now I see you don't really understand that the average score o...

re: Do ER doctors earn a lot compared to other drs? - studentforlife
[quote]Let me know where your ignorant arse practices, I would never want to go there. Statically the highest ranked Med students don't go into EM. You can debate it all you want. [/quote] It's ok to be stupid as long as you are willing to learn. Instead of a "debate" with your made up numbers ba...

[quote]Do you teach? I would eventually like to do academics in EM. I’ve worked at LSU NOLA, OLOL, and LSU Shreveport so if you’re in state I have probably met you.

[quote]Glad for you. I also love my specialty (radiology) and can’t imagine choosing nearly any other. [/quote] Glad to hear it. And you likely chose it because of that and didn't choose it just because you couldn't get into derm. shoestring's idea that the top 1% of every class should go into d...

re: Do ER doctors earn a lot compared to other drs? - studentforlife
[quote]No way he they had a full ride in med school and opted ER. Top 1% get med school schollies and no way they choose ER. Would have been a dermatologist or higher level subspecialty with that high of a rank!![/quote] This has so much ignorance in it, but like most, you don't know what you don...

re: Great news! Azithromycin & Chloroquine: victory lap - studentforlife
Did anyone actually read this study? They removed 3 out of 26 patients who received treatment because they went to the ICU and one because they died. There are other flaws in the study but this is the major one. You can’t just decide to not count your bad outcomes because they don’t support your hyp...

re: Major national med school test changes from a score to pass/fail - studentforlife
I am actually more of a fan of a more clinically focused exam taken after a year + of clinical training (step 2) determining your qualifications for your ultimate clinical training (residency for most specialties) than a test prior to any clinical training at most institutions, not based on clinical...

re: Sitting in the doctor office with my kid, doctor wants to prescribe - studentforlife
[quote]Many up to date pediatricians also do not routinely treat middle ear infections with antibiotics as the vast majority are viral, however I think a “wait and see if it gets better” approach (giving parents an Rx and letting them decide to fill or not) is the best way to go.[/quote] I agree ...

There are lots of things being thrown around in this thread with some at least partially right and a lot wrong with regard to Group A streptococcal (GAS) pharyngitis (colloquially called "strep throat"). As mentioned above, it is a bacterial infection, not a viral infection, and current treatment gu...
