I'm aware that ems is not the same environment I will be working in therefore some of you might say its not the best preparation. Although I have already spent a bit over 300 volunteer hours back in high school on the surgical floor of a local hospital. So I have been exposed to working with physicians, nurses, patients, and everything in between. These 300 hours are not a lot at all relative to everyone else here who have it as their job. However I felt it was a good first step In knowing this is what I want to do. If anything that experience made me want it even more. I also figured that despite ems environment, the classes and skills such as thinking on your feet to save a life were similar to that of a doctor. Seeing as how I want to be either a surgeon or an ER physician
