On Emergency Medicine from THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CHOOSING A MEDICAL SPECIALTY, by B. Freeman, 2003. 

What makes a good emergency physician (EP)?

-Likes working with hands
-Adventurous, action-oriented leader, and team player
-Can make logical decisions during rapidly changing situations
-Likes the variety and unexpected
-Is capable of juggling multiple tasks at once
-Comfortable with broad knowledge base

2.8% of ALL physicans are EPs
70% are in private practice, 25% are in academics
EP's work an average of 38.7 hours per week
75% report that their salary is equal or higher than expected

2002 Match Statistics
-1,564 applicants for 1211 positions
-992 US seniors and 600 IMGs ranked at least on EM program
- 98% of all positions were filled in the Match

90 residency programs are a THREE-year program, 14 are a FOUR-year program, and 20 require three years of EM residency after a separate internship year.

EM residents also complete rotations in medicine, critical care, anesthesia, cardiology, and OB/GYN.    The bulk of their training consist of monthly rotations in adult and pediatric emergency medicine, trauma, surgery, toxicology, emergency medical services, and ultrasound. Many programs require research:)
