    Fighting with Emergency Medicine colleagues is stupid. Learn how EM doctors think and avoid the petty infighting with tips from Dr. Scott Weingart, MD FCCM FUCEM DipHTFU, host of the EMCrit podcast, Clinical Associate Professor and Chief, Division of Emergency Critical Care at Stony Brook Hospital, NY. We discuss decision making, how to avoid anchoring bias, the devil of the gaps, why the elderly always get admitted, how to build relationships with the ED, and Scott’s pet peeves.
