The student elective in Emergency Medicine is one of the most popular rotations at the University at Buffalo.
Enrolled students are assigned to one of our main teaching hospitals (ECMC or BGMC). Each student will be assigned to a faculty preceptor during each clinical shift. All patients seen by students will be presented directly to the attending physician.
At the end of the month students will be expected to:
(will be arranged on an individual basis)
Students will be responsible to give shift evaluations to 5 attendings that they work with during their clinical time in the Emergency Department. The clerkship grade is based on a composite of these evaluations from faculty as well as their case presentation and participation in didactic requirements.
Students will attend Emergency Medicine Grand Rounds lectures each Wednesday morning from 8:30am-12:30pm.
There will be a student lecture series in addition to the Emergency Medicine Grand Rounds, which students are required to attend. The lectures will occur every Monday from 9:00am-12:00pm. A lecture schedule will be distributed during the first week of the module.
