Program Goals

Through our EM clerkship, students will be able to:

  • Gain an understanding of how the hospital works as a whole, starting from the Emergency Department (ED).

  • Gain experience in performing a focused history and physical exam.

  • Gain experience presenting their findings to attending physicians and advanced practice providers*

  • Broaden their understanding of differential diagnosis and treatment plans

  • Take advantage of the opportunity to perform and/or observe a wide range of procedures


The clinical experience entails clinical shifts in our ED areas: Trauma, Fast Track (low-acuity illnesses), Major Medicine, and Pediatrics.

In addition to bedside teaching, didactics are held every Wednesday from 9 am - 2 pm for students. These mandatory sessions include case discussions, EM Ultrasound lectures, case reviews, and dedicated student sessions.


PA and medical students can schedule their rotations accordingly:

All students MUST complete all pre-rotation and/or credentialing requirements in time in order to be cleared to start a rotation and be added to the ED schedule. Credentialing is not handled by the EM Clerkship Program at all.
