The Emergency Department offers assigned rotations and electives to NYMC Students, Touro PA students, and NYCPM podiatry students. Students who wish to do an audition rotation at Met are encouraged to apply through VSAS. Please contact Waleska Ovalles at Waleska.Ovalles@nychhc.org for additional information.
Students work directly with residents and attendings. Upon seeing patients, students present cases to the residents, and the resident-student team discusses management of patients with attendings. This offers the most complete educational opportunity. Students will follow results of lab work, imaging studies and EKGs involved in each case, and therefore build his/her understanding of each diagnostic modality. Students also have an opportunity to learn how to perform common ED procedures, and in many cases, will complete the procedure.
Rotators through the ED attend didactic EM Conferences on Wednesday mornings. In addition to students, the ED provides rotations for MHC’s internal medicine, psychiatry, and podiatry residents.
