You're in a hospital working along side doctors to learn how to do everything and each specialty has different requirements. For example, not everyone has to do general surgery as part of their residency, someone who is going to become a surgeon would, but someone becoming an anesthesiologist would not. You're practicing medicine, but it's under the supervision of a licensed physician.

Surgeons usually have to do a residency followed by a fellowship. In their fellowship they learn and practice the specific area of surgery they are going into. My neighbor is an orthopaedic surgeon and he went to medical school for 4 years, then did a residency for 5 years, then did his fellowship in sports Medicine, knee & shoulder reconstruction for 1 year. All at different places too, so it took him 10 years to become an ortho surgeon, which is an extremely competitive field. You have to do very well in med school to get a spot in an ortho program from what I've been told.

Surgeons generally have the longest residency period (5 years) followed by a 1-2 year fellowship. Your general physician that you'd see when you're sick will usually have a 3 year residency and then they can go out and start working.

That doesn't mean anything. My friend majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and I don't even think he makes $50k a year as a research associate working for a large biotech company. Choosing an uncommon and difficult major doesn't necessarily mean that you will earn a higher salary.

i went to a pre-med conference once where they really emphasized choosing extracurricular activities that you genuinely care about as opposed to activities that you assume an admissions committee wants to see. That way, if you reach the interview stage, you can talk passionately about what you've done as opposed to just telling them that you did it. don't just assume that medical schools want to see a bunch of medical related volunteer work. You're already going to be an emt, so do things away from work that you enjoy that you can tell them about.

Some ideas:
Boys & girls club
homeless shelter
food drives
toy drives
some cities have volunteer groups that take kids on outdoor hikes and stuff

i'm sure you can find plenty of volunteer opportunities in your area. They are always happy to have extra help.

i was about to say that haha.


I go to UCDMC. congrats on UPenn, paramedic

also for everyone going into medicine for money you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Making that six figure salary should be last on the list.

Isn't school 4 years, two years of lecture and two years of clinical and then you graduate? The time after that is residency and the length depends on your specialty, I don't think tuition is involved at that point. I think including school and residency it can take anywhere from 7-10 years depending on your specialty, but I'm pretty sure tuition is only involved in the first 4 years at a med school. I could be wrong though.


tuition is for the first four years, and after that depending on the type of residency, you still have to pay, i.e. certain fellowships.

you can work as a paramedic in the hospital, or the hospital has its own ambulance service?

here the ambulance company is privately owned, and they hire all the paramedics. EMTs can work at a hospital as a tech though.

Hospital has it’s own ambulance service called JeffSTAT. Alot of ambulance services here are either non-profit or private. We call the private ambulance services rent-a-medics because half of them are not even in uniform and just do patient transport which is a fucking rip-off in itself. Private ambulances are basically glorified taxi’s.

You may not think uniforms are important but they ease patient anixety. Would you rather have a guy dressed clean and neat working on you or some hump wearing a t-shirt and jeans.

The company here has uniforms that they all wear, the company pays for them. We have private transport companies here that do real basic stuff like taking someone from a senior citizen community to their doctors appointment, but the emergency stuff and even BLS stuff is handled by a private company that runs the dispatch center and everything.
