Medical Student Rotation Overview

The Emergency Medicine Clerkship at North Florida Regional Medical Center will introduce the student to the initial assessment, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of typical chief complaints seen in an emergency department.  The student will spend four weeks in a busy emergency department seeing both pediatric and adult patients suffering from medical, surgical, or traumatic disease.  Students will be responsible for the assessment and management of their patients while working closely with other students, residents, and attending physicians as well as hospital staff.  Students will observe and may participate in a variety of procedures.  Regular attendance at weekly didactic and hands-on conferences, simulation sessions, EMS ride along sessions (including air rescue if interested), and journal clubs is required.  A case presentation will be required. We also plan to have dedicated medical student lectures and workshops to enhance your learning. Students who are interested in matching in an Emergency Medicine Residency through ERAS will have the opportunity to interview with the North Florida Emergency Medicine Residency Program during their rotation.

To apply, please use Clinician Nexus. MD and DO students are welcome!
