snplow Posted December 1, 2006 Report Share Posted December 1, 2006 Hey all, I am actually not in medicine (I'm a 3rd year undergrad) but I have a question that might require the expertise of someone directly in the field. I was wondering how one would go about working for the Shock/Trauma Air Rescue team? You're going to have to forgive my ignorance by asking such a broad question, but I'm really not sure about any of the processes once you're in medicine let alone going about to work for a particular organization. Also, I was wondering if anyone can tell me what is like to work for them? To my understanding, you have to be an ER doc [in which someone told me, you can do that by either picking family med with an ER subspecialty or doing your residency in ER]? I've actually really been into aviation, but I had to put my flying on hold because of university (I definately don't have the money to do both at the same time), but eventually, I would like to apply for medicine, and if I do manage to get in, I figure that would a good combination. I know that STARs fly helicopters and not fixed winged aircrafts, but I can live with the compromise of just being up there in the air again Anyways, thanks for the comments!
