Who are Emergency Doctors?
Emergency Doctors are medical doctors who work in hospitals to provide care to people who suddenly become ill with life-threatening illnesses or injuries.
A typical emergency doctor will have done a four-year university science degree followed by an additional four years of Medical School. After that, emergency doctors undergo additional years of specialty training to become qualified as “Emergency Physicians”.
The learning never stops; to stay qualified, all emergency doctors must take ongoing, life-long training in order to provide the best care for patients.
The emergency room never closes. Almost without exception, emergency rooms are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; and ER doctors are always there.
