The focus of the first year is to provide the fund of knowledge and basic skills needed to practice Emergency Medicine, including management of critically ill patients. This is obtained through nine blocks of emergency medicine rotations at both Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and Bridgeport Hospital (BH), as well as six weeks of intensive care experience at YNHH. The first block of intern year is an intense orientation consisting of seminars, workshops, lectures, and simulations, while working a light schedule in each of the Emergency Departments. Additional time is provided in obstetrics, orthopedics, and anesthesiology/ultrasound. Four weeks of the first year is dedicated to intensive training in emergency ultrasound as part of a combined anesthesiology/ultrasound rotation.
