Emergency Medicine Clerkship


The Emergency Medicine Clerkship at SIU immerses medical students in a variety of settings and roles within the Emergency Department. Our aim is to promote and facilitate an active learning environment by placing students at the bedside. The wide range of pathology, acuity, patient demographics, and specialty care that is provided in our Emergency Departments provides a great learning opportunity for learners of all levels and desired specialties. Students will gain an appreciation for the role of Emergency Medicine as a resource for any patient at any time and its function in the greater healthcare system. We hope that our students leave their rotation able to appropriately establish a safety net for all patients, learn the initial approach to a wide variety of common Emergency Department chief complaints and experience the acute resuscitation and stabilization of the acutely ill patient.
