Respect level

This is so true.

Emergency medicine is unique in that, in general, the public sees us very differently than other physicians.

What Family/Friends Say
...You must really know a lot to be able to take care of whatever walks through the door.

Respect Level: High, right there with surgeons.


What Non-Emergency Physicians Say
...You guys are a bunch of hacks, basically glorified triage nurses. I can’t believe you know so much less about my speciality than me.

Respect Level: Slumming it with the family docs and psychiatrists.

(as expressed by Dr. Ten out of Ten)

What friends, family, and the general public think is so much more important than what non-EPs think!!

You've been tagged! Nocturnal RN said it's the law so you have to do it! Write seven things about yourself and then tag seven other people.

I'm going to comment now after you've been tagged by me. I wonder if that's a good idea.

I have worked the ER (as a RN) for many years and your assessment of how the doctors (and nurses if I could add that) are perceived is dead on the money. When my daughter entered medical school she wanted to be a surgeon......then later she said.... "Mom, I really don't need to be that far up on the food chain." See that...even the lowly medical students can recognize the surgeons for the demigods that they are!

I can't imagine the thick skin an emergency doc has to have! Having worked as a medical assistant, surgical assistant, and quality management specialist, I can only say that the idea of having to be 'on' for whatever comes your way at any given time simply amazes me. So glad there are those of you who don't feel the need for those 'higher on the food chain' to admire you in order to do a good job. Keep up the good work!

I respect the Emergency Physician but I'm a lowly primary care physician so go figure! In terms of earned respect..the primary care doctor has to know much more, have better communication skills and should be at the TOP of the food chain in terms of respect. It is all backwards.

WHAT! I'm offended. As a future family doctor, I do not slum with ER docs or the like, thanks very much. Just kidding. I couldn't ask for better company.
