PHA 658 - Emergency Medicine Clinical Rotation


This five-week rotation provides the physician assistant student with practical clinical experience working in an urban and/or rural acute care setting. This enables the student to develop a focused and systematic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of common medical and surgical emergencies. This rotation also teaches the student about the indications, limitations, and methodology of emergency room diagnostic procedures and therapeutic regimens. In addition, this rotation provides students with the opportunity to formulate organized and complete emergency room records, problem lists, and management plans. The student will gain experience in the emergency room fast track and emergency medical services and in treating more critical patients in the main emergency room.
