Forum Name: Becoming a Medical Student

Question: Job Security

From what I've been reading, it seems that almost everyone wants to go into emergency medicine. The question that I have is, are there too many doctors in the working world (or training to be)? If I do become an ER doc, will there be room for me??
Thanks

Dear med-geek,

There is always a room for new doctors or else the medical colleges would be shut :) . It depends on the hospitals in your surrounding area and after all, it depends on how good you are so that they'd ask for you :wink: ....you have to train well and build up your qualifications .

Best wishes,
