The Department of Emergency Medicine has established an elective for third year medical students at UICOMP. The elective is available during most blocks of the year for 2 weeks at a time. During this elective, students work 7 shifts in the ED directly with an upper level EM resident, participate in our EM conferences (total of 10 hours of didactics with procedural labs and simulation training), and practice procedures (ie – foley insertion, laceration repair, splinting, etc) during each ED shift. Shift times range between day and evening. Overnight shifts are currently not required but may be accommodated upon request. At this time, the M3 rotation is only available to UICOMP students.
