Emergency Medicine Clerkship
Students must successfully complete all required third-year clerkships as a prerequisite for the emergency medicine rotation. Following an initial didactic series, students in this rotation work approximately 15 nine-hour shifts during which they are supervised by board-certified emergency medicine faculty and senior emergency medicine residents. The Department of Emergency Medicine operates on the belief that autonomy and responsibility are essential for students to learn the fundamental approach to patients with undifferentiated urgent or emergent conditions.
The Emergency Medicine Student Interest Group at IU School of Medicine provides exposure to the field of emergency medicine through lunch talks, skills labs and EM simulations, and other educational experiences.
