PAMS 6554 Emergency Medicine

This core clinical rotation provides students with exposure to the principles and practice of emergency medicine.  This supervised clinical practice experience enables students to assess patients seeking medical care (in the emergency department) across the life span with an emphasis on caring for the acutely and chronically ill adolescent, adult, and elderly patient.  Students will gain exposure to the triage, evaluation, and management of patients in the emergent medical setting.  Emphasis is on students assessing patient acuity, disease state, and appropriate management within the confines of the emergency medicine department.  Students are expected to participate as a member of an interprofessional team in the assessment and care of major and minor medical emergencies. This clinical rotation will also enable students to achieve the learning outcomes needed to attain the competencies in the management of acute and emergent conditions. This clinical experience will enable the student to provide care as an entry level physician assistant upon graduation.
