Advanced EM Rotation

The Advanced EM Elective is designed for the senior student who are pursing a career in Emergency Medicine and wish to obtain more in-depth knowledge of the field.  This 4-week rotation consists of approximately twelve 8-hour clinical shifts in the UMC Emergency Department and three specialty shifts in EMS, Emergency Ultrasound, and Hyperbaric Medicine.  Weekly didactics, and hands-on skills sessions and simulation labs provide students with the ability to increase their knowledge base and procedural acumen.
