Once you have obtained a degree in medicine, you may wish to specialise in emergency medicine.

The most important skill thereafter is the ability to work in urgent and stressful scenes where time is of the essence. You must be able to adapt quickly to fast paced scenarios when treating patients who required emergency medical care. Multitasking and making quick and appropriate medical decisions is an important skill.

Another important skill to have is the ability to work in a team. Teamwork is important when working in emergency medicine as you cannot always treat a patient by yourself. You may require the help of nurses and a surgeon.
