Experience everyday life in an emergency department
Practitioners of emergency medicine (doctors and nurses) must be able to undertake high-stress troubleshooting and rapid medical detective work, as well as make split-second decisions that can make the difference between a patient’s life or death. This is usually carried out in the most intense department of a hospital – the emergency department.
