During this Senior Clerkship course, students are expected to apply and build on skills that they have learned during Core Clerkship courses. In the Emergency Medicine Clerkship, students have the opportunity to evaluate a large variety of undifferentiated patients presenting with a wide spectrum of complaints. They function as fully integrated members of the healthcare team, responsible for direct patient care with direct supervision by attending physicians and/or senior emergency medicine residents. Students are also encouraged to take part in all academic activities of the department, such as morbidity and mortality rounds and journal clubs.
Clinical electives are designed to allow students to gain experience in emergency care. Students are encouraged to participate in the diagnosis and management of patients with a wide range of minor or major medical/surgical problems and to learn medical and surgical procedures related to emergency care. This is an exciting, hands-on elective.
