Students assume the role of interns in the Emergency Department at U of Utah Hospital and at IMC Hospital during this rotation.

Students will work under the direct supervision of faculty and senior residents during their rotation (same as an intern). Students will be assigned to day, evening, and overnights shifts during their rotation. Students will participate in all resident didactic conferences, and journal clubs. Students will also participate in student specific didactic sessions and skills labs. Rotations in July-September are reserved for students going into Emergency Medicine.
