ROTATION IN THE ED AT

MOUNT SINAI BETH ISRAEL

Rotation Information

Students will gain experience on the front lines of medicine seeing undifferentiated patients as they walk – and are wheeled through – the Emergency Department doors. This is Manhattan's busiest adult ED with over 110,000 patients seen per year, offering the full range of patients and procedures. Guided by experienced clinicians who know that there is no substitute for hands-on learning, the student gains increasing autonomy, confidence and skill. Beth Israel was a central hub of emergency medical care in Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy and 9/11, and the staff remains seasoned by the ongoing battles against aging, disease and accident. After a recent top-to-bottom renovation, the MSBI ED boasts state-of-the-art trauma bays, imaging, and computer systems. During the 4-week elective, students are expected to act as sub-interns, picking up new patients independently and presenting their cases directly to an ED attending or senior resident. Participation in notifications and other high acuity cases is not merely encouraged but expected. Didactic activities include daily morning report and Wednesday resident conferences as well as dedicated medical student skills workshops in SIM lab, orthopedic procedures , suturing, IVs , and ultrasound. Evaluations are based on shift evaluations, a 15-minute case evidence-based presentation and a quiz taken from a list of assigned reading.

Students are expected to work a combination of 8-12 hour shifts for 13 shifts total. The end of clerkship grade is based on shift evaluations, a 15-minute case evidence-based presentation and a quiz.
