Emergency Medicine Clerkship

Interested in a rotation in Emergency Medicine?

Non-UT medical students should apply through VSAS for an EM clerkship. Please contact Melissa Johnson (information below) about any questions regarding the clerkship. 

Current UT students who are interested in doing a rotation in Emergency Medicine should contact the Clerkship Coordinator.   

A note to students: Students will not be allowed to register for a rotation in EM if it is in violation of the 30-day rule.  This does not allow adequate time to schedule the educational experiences that are a required part of our rotation.

The EM Experience

During the clerkship, students will be scheduled in the ED during days, afternoons, nights, and two weekends. Students are also required to attend weekly simulations at the Simulation Center, attend weekly EM conference, and complete one 12 hour EMS ride along.  Students will experience interdisciplinary teaching by nursing staff/students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, attending physicians, and residents. 

Effective June 16, 2014: We will be using a third party scheduling software.  For students enrolled in an EM rotation you will receive your login instructions to your UT email address.  All scheduling requests need to be submitted through the scheduling system.  Once the schedule is finalized no changes will be made and any requests will need to be done through a shift trade. 

For students currently in rotation or ending a rotation:


Q:  Is there a formal orientation for this rotation?
A:  Yes.  We will meet on the first Monday of the rotation immediately after simulation/IT Training.  All students are REQUIRED to attend.

Q:  My ride-along shift is tomorrow and I don't know where to go!
A:   To locate the station for your ride-along shift, locate the life squad you're scheduled with on the Toledo Fire and Rescue website

Q:  Am I required to log my procedures and cases?
A:  No.  Students are not required to log cases and procedures in MedEd.  

Q:  Where can I find the requirements for this rotation in case I missed something during orientation?
A:  In the EM Student Handbook.  There is a link above to the handbook that can also be found on Blackboard.  It has helpful hints and lists the requirements of the rotation. Students with questions should not hesitate to contact the clerkship coordinator or clerkship director. 

Q: Where and how do I receive my schedule?
A:  Scheduling is handled through WhenToWork.com.  Students will receive login instructions prior to the start of their rotation. Please check your Utoledo Rockets email address including the spam folders.  If you were not sent your login credentials, please email the clerkship coordinator.

Q:  I feel that a faculty or staff member is treating me unfairly, what do I do?
A: Students who feel they are being treated unfairly should read the Faculty Professionalism Policy and contact any faculty member from the College of Medicine, the Physician Assistant Program, or the College of APN.  Students are also encouraged to talk to either the Program Director or the Program Coordinator.  All Emergency Medicine Policies can be found on College of Medicine and Life Sciences Policy Website.

Q:  How many days am I allowed to request off?
A:  In accordance with the COM Attendance policy, students are allowed to request a total of 3 days off per rotation.
