All students will attend Monday morning ambulatory didactics, and a simulation exercise run by the EM Simulation faculty on two Monday afternoons. The remaining two Monday afternoons will be set aside as flexible time for students to complete their Emergency Medicine asynchronous learning modules.

During the ambulatory block, students will attend general medicine and subspecialty clinics Tuesday-Friday, as well as participate in one Cardinal Free Clinic shift.

During the emergency medicine block, students will work seven shifts, which will be a mixture of days, evenings, and overnights in the SUMC ED. Holidays in the EMed portion of this clerkship are treated as work days.
