I think it was the personal connection.
- In my career as an EM doc, I will see plenty of shootings.
- I've already been a part of care for a man down.
- I admire how firemen, police officers and medics put themselves at risk for a greater good.
- In the recent match, I ranked the emergency medicine residency at Highland Hospital (in Oakland) very high on my list.
Is there is also a role for EM docs outside in the community talking about violence, safety and emergency response? I'm sure the answer is yes. I wonder what that would look like.
