Although the first residency training programs in emergency medicine opened their doors over 45 years ago, it has already become one of the most popular specialties in the United States. The reasons are clear: emergency medicine offers an exciting and challenging medical career with good work-life balance, schedule flexibility and patient variety.

While emergency medicine certainly isn’t for everyone, recent data suggests the majority of practicing emergency physicians report high levels of happiness outside of work hours.
