The Department of Emergency Medicine plays a role in the education of Feinberg medical students throughout their program. The faculty and staff of Feinberg’s Department of Emergency Medicine have a strong commitment to undergraduate medical education beginning in the pre-clinical years. Several members of the emergency medicine faculty instruct medical school curriculum, including: Problem-Based Learning (PBL); Medical Decision Making (MDM); Introduction to Clinical Clerkships (ICC); and Patient, Physician, and Society (PPS).
