Medical Education

Medical students at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry (URSMD) will complete a mandatory Emergency Medicine Clerkship during their fourth year of medical school. During this clerkship, students will learn to develop appropriate assessment, differential diagnosis, and action plans for patients based on their presenting signs and symptoms.

The URSMD also offers an Advanced Emergency Medicine elective for students wishing to expand upon the experience of the Emergency Medicine Clerkship with emphasis on assuming internship-level responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment, and disposition of patients.
