Yale Emergency Department
This rotation is designed to give PGY-2 and PGY-3 residents intensive exposure to acute care neurology. The residents act as consultant to the ED, evaluating all patients coming in with primary neurological complaints. They are responsible for admissions, discharges, and arranging follow-up from the ED. Furthermore, the residents run all acute stroke alerts and administer tPA if indicated. The ED work hours are from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM, Monday thru Friday. The ED block is 1 month long with all weekends off as this is often a challenging rotation. The resident does attend continuity clinic one afternoon per week and the Float resident covers ER consults during those afternoons.
