Emergency Medicine Medical Student Rotation

The medical student rotation at BAMC is a 4 week rotation that allows the medical student to become a key member of the decision making team. Students work side by side with the residents and staff while in the Department and are able to enjoy the sites of San Antonio on their free time. Below are some important aspects of the rotation.

Students will...

  • Function as a contributing member of the care team, presenting either directly to the staff or to Emergency Medicine (EM) residents on shift
  • Participate in medical decision making and be responsible for charting and documentation of the patient’s care
  • Attend weekly Grand Rounds that cover a variety of Emergency Medicine specific topics and didactic sessions
  • Participate in the monthly procedure lab, allowing students to practice cricothyrotomy, thoracotomy, chest tube insertion, and intubation
