Emergency Medicine Sub-internship

Subipic (003)

The sub-internship in Emergency Medicine is a four-week rotation representing the responsibilities of an emergency medicine intern. The course is intended to prepare fourth-year medical students who are considering a future in Emergency Medicine.

This four-week course includes clinical shifts in the emergency department as well as elective opportunities to participate in medic flight and ems ride alongs, nursing skills, procedure and ultrasound scanning shifts. Students will be expected to manage their patients from medical documentation to following through with their medical decision making and dispositions by completing their own consultations. The student will be actively involved in the work-flow of the department including everything from trauma activations to stroke alerts.  The sub-internship will focus on the integration of the student within the team of the emergency department.

There is a didactic schedule to enhance the clinical portion of the rotation which includes a series of weekly dedicated medical student lectures, hands-on procedure labs, and patient simulations, in addition to the weekly residency conferences on Thursdays. You will also attend monthly journal club as well as an ultrasound day consisting of student focused ultrasound lectures and departmental hands-on scanning led by our ultrasound faculty and fellows.

Interested applicants should contact Carrie Downey at cdowney3@wellspan.org for application details and our Clerkship Director, Dr. Nicole Peters, at npeters2@wellspan.org with any questions.
