Emergency Medicine Clinical Clerkship

EM Clinical Clerkship (Sub-I) - EM 404

For those interested in learning the fundamentals of recognition and treatment of urgent conditions, our 4-week clerkship provides an exciting training experience with clinical experiences complemented by a didactic workshop curriculum including ultrasound and simulation. 

Elective Description

During the 4 week Sub-I, the student will experience a variety of urgent patient care cases in two locations: the University campus which is a Level 1 Trauma Center, the Memorial ED located in the urban center of Worcester. 

There are 15 clinical shifts during the 4 week rotation which incorporates shifts at the Memorial Campus, shifts with an assigned preceptor, and overnight shifts. The student will interact directly with the ED Attendings and Senior Residents.

  • Optional EMS and/or Med Flight Experience

Students are given full access to patients and are expected to elicit histories, perform physical exams and procedures in addition to discuss cases in order to form and implement patient care plans.

Didactics include a student lecture series, resident conferences, and workshops in wound care, ultrasound and simulation scenarios. Reading resources are provided through an online learning management system to which all students receive access.
