EMED 313A: Emergency Medicine Clerkship

Overall Description: During this 4-week, multi-site selective, medical students will develop critical skills in the rapid evaluation and management of undifferentiated and acutely ill patients in three unique emergency department settings: Stanford University Medical Center (SUMC), Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC), and the Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center (KPMC). At each of these sites, rotators will work directly with an emergency medicine attending. With this high level of mentorship and guidance, learners will gain confidence assessing and resuscitating the incredible spectrum of patients presenting at each of the three clinical sites. Clinical Duties: Students will work thirteen 8-hour clinical shifts (7 at SUMC, 3 at SCVMC, 3 at KPMC) during the rotation. Rotators will have the opportunity to play an integral role on the care team, learning to take full responsibility in ensuring their patients receive high quality emergency care. Students will lead the initial assessment of each patient, performing complaint-directed history and physical exam, developing a focused differential diagnosis, and then designing and implementing a targeted care plan with input and support from the attending physician. Students will also learn essential communication skills, acting as the primary contact between the care team, patients, patient¿s families, consultants and hospital staff. Educational Curriculum: Throughout the rotation, students will have access to a number of supporting educational events outside of the emergency department. Students will attend weekly core curriculum conference with the Stanford/Kaiser Emergency Medicine residents, as well as a monthly journal club. Rotators will also have dedicated, student oriented educational sessions focused on bedside ultrasound, laceration repair, orthopedic injury management, and ECG interpretation, as well as a series of interactive, faculty-led, case discussions. The rotation culminates in a final written exam and an immersive, student-only simulation session held at Stanford¿s innovative Center for Immersive and Simulation Based Learning. Visiting students ONLY accepted periods 12-6, pre-approval is required only for visiting students for periods 12-6. Pre-approval dates are as follows: Periods 1-3 (March 19-23), Period 4-6 (June 19-23), and Period 12 (December 1-5). Please contact clerkship coordinator Maria Alfonso (malfonso@stanford.edu) to inquire about pre approval process and materials needed for submission.nnPrerequisitesnAll students must have completed core clerkships in medicine, surgery, Ob/Gyn and pediatrics are required.
