Combined emergency medicine / family medicine elective (4th year)

Christiana Care Health System Departments of Family and Community Medicine and Emergency Medicine offer a combined emergency medicine/family medicine outpatient elective rotation. This rotation includes:

  • One week spent seeing patients in our Family Medicine Center with a faculty member or resident physician.
  • One week spent on the Family Medicine inpatient service at Wilmington Hospital. We care for patients from our Family Medicine Center and other family medicine community sites including nursing homes, juvenile detention facilities, community attending physician practices that use our service as their admitting hospitalist group, and also unassigned patients. This service is provided by a team that includes a faculty member, two upper year residents and three interns. A fourth-year student would function in this setting as a subintern with basically the same responsibilities as an intern.
  • Two weeks spent in the Emergency Medicine Departments at Wilmington and Christiana Hospitals.

This elective rotation would be beneficial to those students interested in pursuing a combined training in family and emergency medicine. Our residency program is the first of its kind in the country, offering a comprehensive and cohesive curriculum that synthesizes the best of these two strong departments.

Training will take place under the supervision of both specialties and is designed to provide the optimal educational experience for those seeking to practice in both specialties.

A car is recommended for this rotation. Housing during the rotation may be available if the student meets criteria established by Christiana Care.
