All phase three students at IU School of Medicine are required to complete the emergency medicine clerkship. This rotation is popular among students and offers them the opportunity to serve as the primary caregiver for patients while working closely with faculty and residents.
Students must successfully complete all required phase two clerkships as a prerequisite for the emergency medicine rotation. During the rotation, students work approximately 14 nine-hour shifts over the 4-week rotation. In addition to their clinical shifts, students are also provided focused lectures and a question bank to aid in their knowledge and studies for the associated NBME exam. Clinical sites are available for rotation at all IU School of Medicine campuses across the state.
