4th Year Sub-Internship
Who can apply?
The 4th year sub-intern rotation is intended for any 4th year medical student planning on applying to emergency medicine residencies.
Where will I be training?
Southern Illinois University School of Medicine is a community based residency training program located in Springfield, IL. We have two primary clinical sites:
Memorial Medical Center is a 500+ bed tertiary care hospital with an annual ED volume of 70,000 patients. It maintains a Level 1 trauma center, a comprehensive stroke center, and a regional burn center.
St. John's Hospital is a 400+ bed tertiary care hospital with an annual ED volume of 65,000. It maintains a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center, a Level 2 Pediatric Trauma Center, a regional stroke center and the St John's Children’s Hospital.
What is the experience like?
Fourth-year medical students will rotate at both sites and function in a sub-internship role independently evaluating patients, documenting and placing orders. Experiences will include time in the high acuity portion of both emergency departments, shifts in the pediatric ER, and hands-on skills with the nursing staff. In addition to clinical duties students participate in weekly residency conference, target medical student weekly simulation sessions and present a teaching case to the faculty.
