This clerkship is a one-month rotation. Students complete the clinical portion of the rotation at the U of C or NorthShore depending on lottery results. Students will have the opportunity to care for patients with a wide range of medical, surgical, and obstetrical/gynecological disorders. They will have a unique opportunity to assess the undifferentiated patient who is often acutely ill. The rotation will provide the students with experience in rapid patient assessment and the opportunity to simultaneously manage multiple patients. We will help the student master the prioritization of care for the individual patient and acquire triage principles required to care for multiple patients in the Emergency Department setting. Orientation will be held on the first day of the rotation and is mandatory, no exceptions. Students will take part in weekly simulation and didactic sessions and must attend all sessions to successfully complete the clerkship.
The emergency medicine clerkship is designed to give students experience in the management of patients with a wide variety of medical conditions, ranging in acuity from the ambulatory stable patient to the critically ill or injured patient. Students will apply clinical knowledge in conducting an appropriate history and physical examination, directed versus comprehensive, based on the patient’s presenting chief complaint.
Students will be evaluated by attending and resident physicians on their ability to perform a focused history and physical, develop appropriate differential diagnoses, propose appropriate diagnostic evaluation and treatment plans, assess and stabilize critically ill patients, and prioritize care for multiple patients. Students will take a final exam and complete a case presentation at the end of the clerkship.
