Welcome to your MSMC EM Rotation!
Emergency medicine is such an exciting, humbling, and rewarding field and we are so glad you get to share your experience with us! We have worked hard to make this month one of your best rotations of medical school.
The ED can be overwhelming. Therefore we have teamed you up with one resident for each of your shifts. You will be expected to see patients as soon as they are placed in a room and report to either the resident or attending physician. You will be involved with many procedures, beside ultrasounds, and codes. We are an extremely busy department with patients from all over the world so be ready to see the unexpected!
You will make your own schedule. Aside from clinical shifts in the ED, you may also have the opportunity to do an ultrasound shift with our US Director Dr. Mark Newberry. Additionally you will spend an afternoon in the sim lab. And finally we will spend another morning outside practicing wilderness medicine.
Prior to your rotation I will email you an introduction letter with detailed information. During rotation you will complete the workbook titled EM Mindset. Plan on doing 1 case out of book/day during rotation but remember to take 1 day each week completely off from medicine! You will have a quiz the last week you are here based on this workbook. We will have weekly meetings during the first hour of our Wednesday conference going over topics like how to become an airway expert, EKG cases, intro to Ophthalmology, and how to stay well in medical school, residency and beyond.
Our team is excited to get to know you, teach you emergency medicine and show you our program is one ofthe best out there! If you have any questions please email me at MBEMstudent@gmail.com
See you soon,
Laurie Boge, DO Medical Student Clerkship Director Mount Sinai Medical Center
