Medical students from UNMC and visiting students from other medical colleges can enroll in our four-week fourth year elective rotation. Third year medical students from UNMC may also choose to spend two weeks of their general surgery rotation in the ED. All students will work shifts in the Nebraska Medicine Emergency Department and attend weekly resident didactics. Other features of the rotation include 1:1 faculty: student teaching on EM shifts, dedicated student didactics, and student centered simulations, laceration repair labs, splint labs and procedure labs.
Our department is actively involved in teaching during the pre-clinical years at UNMC. This includes a longitudinal point of care ultrasound curriculum (POCUS) and a two week boot camp that serves as in introduction to the clinical years. We are excited to involve medical students early in their education by facilitating skills labs, lectures and shadowing experiences through the Emergency Medicine Interest Group (EMIG) here at UNMC.
