Medical Student Rotations

Emergency Medicine Sub-Internship

Students will rotate between Christiana Hospital & Wilmington Hospital.

Expectations and Responsibilities

Welcome to the ChristianaCare Emergency Medicine Student Clerkship! Our MS4 Clerkship is a highly competitive rotation and we are excited that you are interested in getting to know us. Our medical students will rotate between Christiana Hospital in Newark (annual ED census 120,000+) and Wilmington Hospital in Wilmington (annual census 65,000+). 

This will provide you with the opportunity to experience both the intensity of a high volume, high acuity, tertiary care facility and the complexities of a county-type, inner city facility. Our system does not have many subspecialty residencies, allowing our emergency medicine residents to gain experience in all types of procedures.

This is a great opportunity to experience our residency as you will be working with some of the strongest EM residents in the country.

You will have several shifts with a dedicated teaching resident providing individualized instruction. We look forward to seeing you.

Unique Attributes

You will attend and participate in our resident didactics on a weekly basis, as well as individual lectures and simulation sessions specifically designed for the students.
