Do you ever regret choosing Emergency Medicine? Does the quiet life of a GP ever seem more appealing?

Never; I wanted to be a General Surgeon (or a trauma surgeon) but since the K doesn't really have dedicated trauma surgeons, and general surgery is effectively an historical speciality, EM was the obvious next choice for me.
I'm not clever enough to be a GP

Ask me anything

Really? I mean really? I'm probably not in a good place to think about moving now, but in a few years... maybe.

Wouldn't i need to re-certify?

Off hand I think we have 4 Brits, 3 South Africans and one new guy, just off the boat trained in Ireland, working in our Emerg an hour or so out of Vancouver. There are some hoops to jump through but from what I hear it's not to bad for UK trained Doc's.

Lots of Skiing, pretty mountains and stuff near by.

And Vancouver.

Plus it's warmer here than what you've been dealing with this winter ;)
