Course Directors: Daniel Wehner, MD, FACEP, Chair, Department of Emergency Medicine, and Paul Trimeloni, CRNP
Third-year students work directly with board-certified and board-prepared emergency physicians to participate in history and physical examination, differential diagnosis and disposition of patients. They gain direct hands-on experience with common emergency procedures and develop skills essential to the practice of emergency medicine.
Fourth-year skill level is stressed to ensure proficiency in common skills essential for all physicians graduating from medical school. In addition to the expanded skill, students are offered rotations in the pre-hospital division, both in air medical transport/scene response and paramedic field participation. Medical students are urged to participate in all shifts in the Emergency Department to gain exposure to different aspects of emergency medicine.
