Students will participate in over 20 hours of didactic sessions during the rotation, including dedicated student sessions to prepare you for EM residency. Our EM Residency didactics every Thursday afternoon include Grand Rounds, Journal Club, QA, and POCUS rounds. Students will also participate in Foundations cases with our EM interns. Supplementary readings will be provided during the orientation, and students will be expected to review these readings or modules throughout the rotation.

Students will be evaluated based on clinical performance, participation in didactics, and specific feedback from attending faculty regarding attitude and approach to learning. The exam at the end of the clerkship will also be factored into the student’s final grade. A Standardized Letter of Evaluation (SLOE) will be completed by our SLOE Committee for all those students applying to EM. Grades for purposes of the SLOE will be Honors, High Pass, Pass, and Fail. Grades for transcript purposes will be reported as Honors, Pass, and Fail, in keeping with the Larner College of Medicine grading scale.
