Emergency Medicine Clerkship

This clerkship consists of 13 eight-hour shifts, two to three night shifts and four to five weekend shifts. Students are expected to arrive on time and participate in sign-out. They may see any patient and will function as a sub-intern, presenting to the attending or senior EM resident, making all necessary calls and performing all necessary procedures. Absences must be excused and are at the discretion of Dr. Kontrick.
