Orientation will occur on the first day of the rotation in the GME office (Dept. 384 MOB, Susan Krause). Please arrive at 0900 on Monday morning in the GME office for paperwork and photo ID, unless otherwise notified. An orientation video and a copy of “An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine, Mahadevan/Garmel, 2nd ed.”, will be provided by the GME office for use during the rotation. Faculty will orient medical students to the Emergency Department after your meeting in the GME office. Clinical shifts will consist of approximately 14 8-10 hour shifts, which will be a mix of daytime, evening, overnight, and weekend shifts. Students will usually work 1:1 with an EM attending to maximize learning. Each patient seen by the student is presented to an EM attending staff physician. Students should present each patient upon completing history and physical examination in a timely fashion. EM residents will give daily informal lectures at 4pm, which students are encouraged to attend. Attendance at Wednesday morning residency conferences and Thursday morning medical student conferences at Stanford is mandatory. A sign-in sheet will be kept at each conference. Reading from the textbook and from journal articles is expected on each patient after your shift and on days off. Students are also expected to attend monthly Journal Club dinner with the residency program (details and articles provided). Open for visiting students (Stanford and UCSF students get first priority).
