"Careers in Emergency Medicine - The ER Doctor"

Emergency room doctors treat all the patients who come through the ER door, regardless of their illness or injury type. Once patients arrive, an ER doctor is responsible for a number of duties, such as assessing their conditions and beginning treatment, ordering tests or X-rays, and/or providing medication.

As with most physicians and surgeons, the ER doctors have demanding education and training requirements: complete at least 4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and, depending on their specialty, 3 to 7 years in internship and residency programs.

Employment of physicians and surgeons is projected to grow 14 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Job growth is projected due to increased demand for healthcare services by the growing and aging population.Join us as our guests discuss their educational background, required training, skills and day-to-day responsibilities and experiences as an emergency room doctors.
