Hi all, I'm an MS3 that has wanted to be an ER doc since he was a kid. I have stayed away from sdn largely because I find it to be unnecessarily anxiety producing and toxic, especially in premedical and med student forums. In thinking about residency applications I ventured on here. What I have found, not surprisingly given my other experiences on this site, is waves of negativity, regret, frustration, and unhappiness written by emergency medicine physicians.
