Pros: very good experience, wide range of procedures, great staff
Cons: long shifts, non-paid position
The University of Louisville Hospital has a very competent emergency department. My typical day would consist of following an ER physician and assisting him/her in common procedures, examining patients, logging charts, taking medical histories, and helping in the trauma room. I worked with a third-year ER resident who was very competent, who worked directly under a supervising attending. The staff at UL Hospital is very diverse, competent, enthusiastic, skilled, and caring.
