The Department of Emergency Medicine welcomes students interested in pursuing Emergency Medicine to participate in its senior EM elective. Students rotate at both the Mount Sinai Hospital as well as Elmhurst Hospital Center. The combined experience of working in a tertiary care academic medical center and a public level 1 trauma center make this rotation an exciting and incredibly diverse clinical experience. Over the course of 14 clinical shifts, students are exposed to a wide variety of cases including dedicated shifts in critical care, trauma, and geriatric emergency medicine. Students act as sub-interns during this rotation and are primary care givers for their patients, developing skills in differential diagnosis, assessment, and EM-specific procedures. Weekly didactic sessions are designed to augment clinical knowledge and are focused on emergent management of critical illness. The innovative curriculum emphasizes simulation and hands-on skill development rather than standard classroom lectures. Topics for these dedicated lab sessions include suturing, ultrasound, cardiac arrest and trauma.
