Welcome to Emergency Medicine at UNC!
Whether you are a medical student visiting from another school, or one of our own students, we welcome you to a month in the unique setting of the emergency department! The ED presents innumerable opportunities for you to establish essential clinical skills. During your month, you’ll practice performing an initial evaluation, stabilizing, diagnosing and treating your patients with undifferentiated illnesses. You will have the opportunity to evaluate and make clinical plans for your patients. You will be responsible for following up on test results, communicating with the patients and their families, call consultants, and working as an intern with the close supervision of an emergency medicine attending physician.
