Medical Student Education

Our goal is to provide clinical rotations and experiences that are representative of the diverse aspects of Emergency Medicine.  We are passionate about providing excellent care to all patients that present to the emergency department.  As future physicians, it is important for medical students to have an opportunity to learn and put into practice their medical knowledge, critical thinking, and communication skills.  In the emergency department, all of these skills are necessary to care for our patients in a sensitive and comprehensive way and to be able to do so in an unpredictable environment.  We are excited for you to learn more about us here at UB!
