M3 ED Rotation
The Department of Emergency Medicine has also established a M3 rotation in the ED in association with the Internal Medicine Department. Students are now rotating in the ED for periods of 2 weeks during their 12 week IM rotation. In this period, students work 7 shifts in the ED during which they are paired strictly with an upper level EM resident, participate in our EM conferences (total of 10 hours of didactics), learn hands on skills in an ED shift dedicated to emergency procedures, and manage critical cases in a team setting during a 5 hour simulation session. At this time, the M3 rotation is only available to UICOMP students.
