Description: The Mass General Brigham Emergency Medicine clerkship exposes students to the fundamentals of emergency care, emphasizing the opportunity to perform initial assessments and develop diagnostic and therapeutic plans for patients with undifferentiated disease. Students will work clinically in both the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital emergency departments, managing the full spectrum of disease acuity from minor illnesses to major trauma. Students are encouraged to embrace the opportunity for autonomy in patient care and will be supervised by senior residents and attending emergency physicians. The clinical experience will be complemented by a longitudinal series of workshops and simulation training throughout the clerkship, including airway management and point-of-care ultrasound. Students interested in more details regarding the course may contact the clerkship directors directly.
