Course Detail
Course Components:
The Emergency Medicine course is a 2-week immersive course in which students gain experience in assessment and management of the undifferentiated acutely presenting patient. This experience is essential for students’ appreciation of what a referral to the Emergency Department means for patients and how they may ultimately function as consultants or admitting providers assisting in the management of emergently presenting patients. This course is based entirely in an Emergency Department and, when available, students will have an opportunity to choose from an academic, community or rural setting. Students will work alongside one physician during each of their 7 shifts during the two-week rotation. Students will be expected to participate in all aspects of patient care including evaluation, treatment, documentation and emergent procedures.
