Clinical Rotations

Our program’s clinical rotations emphasize critical care and pediatrics experiences.  We also offer unique rotations in neuro-intensive critical care and early exposure to unparalleled ultrasound training and EMS.  Throughout these rotations, residents will encounter complex patients with varying acuities in various settings including community rotations, acute care units, emergency departments, intensive care units, and surgical units.  Because of these unique opportunities, our residents graduate as well-rounded physicians who can thrive in academic and many types of community practice.

Orientation Block

The goal of the Orientation block is to provide a smooth transition into residency.During this two week block, residents discover how the Emergency Department, hospital and community work together to provide patient care.

Through this orientation block, participants get to know fellow residents and faculty through various educational experiences. Activities include a hospital tour, a library tour and visits to community resources.

The residents are introduced to programs related to emergency medicine including the medical flight service, the disaster medical assistance team, the center for injury prevention and research. Residents also work about 15 hours weekly in the ED.
