EMED 114SI: On the Path to Medical School

This is a service-learning course for prospective pre-medical students who seek knowledge and guidance on their path to medical school, with a component working alongside doctors in the Emergency Room at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. Students apply to volunteer with SCOPE (Student Clinical Opportunities for Pre-medical Experience) in order to participate. At the hospital, students will learn how to navigate a trauma level 1 Emergency Room environment, communicate with a variety of patients, and assist physicians during their shift to increase workflow efficiency. Moreover, students can develop close relationships with physicians during their shifts and receive valuable mentorship. This course helps students develop the necessary skills to become an efficient, successful pre-medical student while also gaining necessary clinical experience as students consider whether medicine is right for them and navigate the path to medical school. Currently, to our knowledge, there are no classes directly targeted towards guiding students on their pre-med path while also providing an active volunteer learning experience, and yet pre-meds are among the largest group of pre-professional students at Stanford. Please visit https://scope.beagooddoctor.org/ to apply to volunteer with SCOPE.

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 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.
