EMERGENCY MEDICINE VOLUNTEERING



Course Overview

Students will become familiar with the specialty of Emergency Medicine through observation and limited hands-on Emergency Department experience. Students are encouraged to participate in patient care in three ways: learning the basic approach to the emergency patient, contributing to resident and staff discussions of basic anatomy and physiology with knowledge obtained from studies of the first or second year level of medical school, and assisting in such procedures as starting IVs, drawing blood, etc. when appropriate. They will interact with emergency medicine faculty and residents in the ED and discuss patient management and emergency medicine principles.
