“Emergency medicine, more than many other specialties, is a team sport. Are you somebody who is going to treat everyone on the team with respect regardless of their level? The reality is that we don’t function without them. On any given day, we must recognize that each person brings something invaluable that contributes to the success of taking care of patients.” — Sarah Tehranisa, EM4
