EM Clerkship Rotation
Kern Medical EM Clerkship Rotation
Up to five medical students per 4-week block can rotate in the Kern Medical Emergency Department. As a busy level II trauma center, there are countless opportunities for suturing, splinting and other procedures. Med students are involved in codes and traumas, especially on a busy Friday night when we need ‘all hands on deck!’ The pace of the rotation and focus of clinical experiences can be self-directed, with encounters at the acute, subacute or urgent care level of illness, in addition to the critical patients mentioned above. Students will join the residents in weekly conferences, will present their own patients to the residents and, after practice, to the attendings as well. Simulation lab is open to students and mock codes are typically run monthly.
If you are an EM interested student, and want a California school- and don’t mind getting your hands dirty- come check us out! And if you are not interested in the ED but still want to learn the Emergency Physician approach to patient care, there are plenty of learning opportunities here!
