EMED 5001 - Emergency Medicine Clerkship



Prerequisite: Core Curriculum This month rotation is structured to give the student an introduction to the specialty of Emergency Medicine. The rotation is designed to provide an opportunity for the student to gain experience in dealing with conditions routinely seen in the practice of Emergency Medicine. Clinical instruction in the initial evaluation and stabilization of the acutely ill and injured patient will be provided by working alongside Emergency Medicine faculty who are present 24 hours a day. The rotation provides ample clinical experience and patient contact. The schedule includes approximately 40 hours of patient contact a week and EMS experience. There is assigned reading and a final exam. Students will rotate at one of several sites, including MCG, Ft. Gordon, Aiken, and Tifton. Sites are subject to change.
