This elective provides students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in a true combined EM/IM clinical experience. Designed for motivated students interested in learning about emergency medicine, outpatient care, and inpatient care, this rotation is ideal for a student who enjoys variety. Each week of the 4 week rotation is divided among both Christiana and Wilmington Hospitals, with equal time spent between the outpatient Adult Medicine Office (EM/IM clinic) as well as the inpatient medical services. Two days a week are also spent rotating with combined EM/IM residents in the emergency department. Christiana and Wilmington hospitals see patients with diverse medical and traumatic pathology at an extremely high volume. There are frequently opportunities to see a patient in the emergency department and follow their disease pathology the next day on the inpatient service. The EM/IM clinic at Wilmington provides a unique perspective on caring for medically complex patients in an underserved urban setting. In addition to daily teaching from EM/IM trained residents and faculty, each week the medical student will have the opportunity to meet with the EM/IM assistant program director for input and feedback.

The Christiana Care EM/IM residency is one of the most long-standing and well established in the country. Graduating residents for twenty years, we have a comprehensive and cohesive curriculum combining pathology, teaching, mentorship and exceptional clinical skill. This rotation is ideal for medical students interested in pursuing a combined residency in Internal and Emergency Medicine.

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