We offer a fourth year elective Clerkship in Emergency Medicine. Medical students will have the opportunity to evaluate and diagnose patients under the direct supervision of our experienced Emergency Medicine Attendings.
The Emergency Medicine rotation is geared towards medical students who view emergency medicine as their probable career choice and are considering our residency.

Apply for emergency medicine clerkship rotations via the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS).  Processing applications will take approximately 60 days so be sure to apply early. No clerkship rotations will be offered during March, April, May or June. Visiting students must be enrolled in a LCME-accredited medical school and must have an USMLE Step 1 or Step 2 score of 220 or higher.

Please contact our Residency Coordinator for more information.
