Clerkship Overview

One of the primary education goals for our department is to provide an experience for medical students that is not only exciting and educational, but is an accurate picture of what emergency medicine is all about. Our mandatory four-week rotation in Emergency Medicine includes a lecture series, a suture lab and required specific clinical experiences the student must complete prior to the end of their rotation. Our students have consistently ranked this clerkship very highly both from an overall perspective and from the experience with the faculty.
