The Department of Emergency Medicine offers a four-week medical student EM rotation through Resurrection Medical Center or Saint Francis Hospital.


The goal of this rotation is to introduce the clinical practice and fundamental didactics of emergency care in an accelerated curriculum appropriate to those students pursuing a career in emergency medicine. It emphasizes bedside teaching, approach to the critical patient, procedures and diagnostic assessment.


  • Students will work 15 8-hour shifts, including a cross-over shift at either Resurrection Medical Center or Saint Francis Hospital
  • Students work one on one exclusively with Emergency Department Attending Physicians in a rigorous, high acuity academic environment 
  • Students perform/assist with numerous procedures - including intubations, Ultrasound Guided Central lines and Orthopedic Procedures
  • Weekly conferences every Thursday from 7am to noon
  • Weekly Didactic Sessions with an attending or senior resident
  • Monthly Journal clubs
  • Extensive Ultrasound Exposure including a monthly Ultrasound Tape Review
  • Airway-RSI/ ACLS lecture and lab using our "STAT Simulator" mannequin (pictured below) or Sim Lab at St. Joseph Hospital.


This format allows ample opportunity for critical evaluation and recommendation for students entering the specialty.


The Emergency Medicine rotation is available to 4th year students attending ACGME accredited medical schools who plan to enter the emergency medicine residency match.


A letter of good standing, proof of medical liability insurance and finally a proof of immunization status (including hepatitis B and current TB screening in the past 12 months) are required prior to confirmation of dates.  All scheduling is done on a first come basis. Finally, RMC does not sponsor visas for applicants to the Emergency Medicine Residency.
