The Department of Emergency Medicine hosts fourth year medical students as they complete a clerkship that lasts a total of six weeks. The clerkship provides students with an exciting, educational and comprehensive experience that reveals the challenges and rewards embedded within the proper and professional practice of Emergency Medicine (EM). Since patients are our greatest teachers; we hope that by the end of the rotation, students will have significantly improved the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to make the most of the learning opportunity our Emergency Department (ED) patients represent.
Objectives of the Clerkship
The student will be taught to:
The clerkship consists of a core four week rotation for fourth year medical students and an additional month equally split between the ED and the students’ public health rotation.
Students will be expected to be present for approximately 26 shifts during the six weeks of their rotation.
The student will be scheduled for a mix of morning, evening and weekend shifts.
Students’ grades will be based on their clinical evaluation by DEM faculty, their performance during case presentations, formal patient evaluations, an end of rotation exam, and a final NBME exam at the end of their fourth year.
Elective Rotations for AUB Medical Students
Students attending AUBMC are welcome to schedule elective rotations in the DEM where they will receive the opportunity to fully participate in the care of our patients. A fulfilling mix of clinical experience, didactics, workshops and simulation labs will ensure a challenging, educational and thoroughly enjoyable elective rotation for those with an interest in EM.
