Medical Student Rotations
Core Emergency Medicine
Please note: This course is only offered to University of Minnesota- Twin Cities Medical Students.
This rotation provides medical students with first-hand experience in dealing with emergency problems in our Level-1 Trauma Center. Students work with emergency medicine residents under supervision by board certified attending staff.
Advanced Emergency Medicine
The Advanced Emergency Medicine course at Regions Hospital is designed for medical students interested in pursuing a career in Emergency Medicine. During this 4 week sub-internship, EM bound students have the opportunity to work directly with the attending physician while completing all of the tasks expected of an EM intern. This heightened expectation includes: patient evaluation, presentation, generation of a differential diagnosis and plan, re-evaluation/updating, discharge, ancillary communication/admission, documentation and procedures. Each student will be assigned a faculty member with whom they will work multiple shifts to improve continuity of educational feedback and mentorship. Individual career advising with program leadership is also available to every student. In addition to approximately 12 Emergency Department shifts, students will have an administrative day (MSOD) where they participate in hospital committee meetings, learn about quality and perform a brief presentation. They will also be expected to attend weekly didactic conference and small group sessions, 4 weekly workshops (toxicology, simulation, ortho/splinting and eye/slit lamp exam) and participate in an EMS ride along. There is a final examination at the conclusion of the rotation. The goal of the rotation is to provide a broad based education on clinical EM and provide each student with the feeling of autonomy to manage an ED patient. We participate in the VSAS application process and accept advanced students from June – November. Student rotations start every 2 weeks during this block.
