Emergency Medicine

The Emergency Medicine rotation is an integrated rotation during which you will complete nine EM shifts over a two week rotation/block during the course of the Core Clerkship year. These shifts will be completed in Emergency Departments (ED) in St. John’s (NL), New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island, depending on where you are assigned to complete your traditional core rotation block(s). You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of allied medical professionals and encounter unique patient populations. 
During your EM shifts you will work in a one-on-one mentored arrangement with experienced staff physicians. Through clinical exposures and targeted feedback you will have an opportunity to develop and refine your clinical approach to a variety of common emergency presentations and conditions, and gain confidence in the identification and management of the critically ill patient.
