    Quitting during probation/orientation

    Hey guys, I just wanted to get some advice. I wanted to change departments and always wanted to try the ER. I wanted to sharpen my critical thinking skills and wanted to work in a busier environment. I eventually got hired as staff with experience, and not part of any fellowship program. Fast forward a couple of months, I have a week left of orientation and I absolutely hate the ER. I get super stressed going into work, almost to the point where I can mini panic attacks. I don't like how crazy busy things get and how I cannot give each patient the time they deserve. I also think that my personality doesn't fit the "ER culture." I thought as time went on, I would get used to the pace of things, but it's becoming more of the opposite for me. It's becoming obvious that the ER is not for me and I really want to quit but I don't want to burn bridges. What should I do?
