Medical Students


The educational mission of the Department of Emergency Medicine is to educate future leaders and scholars who will advance the practice of emergency medicine.

Medical Student Education

The Yale Emergency Medicine Clerkship is a three-week rotation focusing on the diagnosis and stabilization of emergency conditions. Students participate in weekly simulation, clinical reasoning conference, and residency didactics. Our faculty has been recognized for outstanding teaching on multiple occasions, including Dr. Leigh Evans, Director of Medical Simulation, who received the Bohmfalk Prize for clinical teaching, and Dr. Karen Jubanyik who received the Francis Gilmore Blake award for outstanding teaching in the clinical sciences.

Visiting Students

The Yale University Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM) welcomes visiting students to participate in a four-week emergency medicine sub-internship. Yale uses the VSAS system for accepting applications from students interested in visiting rotations. In addition, please contact Dr. Jessica Bod if you require more information about the rotation or contact Lorraine Roseman for administrative concerns.

We offer an Emergency Medicine Bedside Ultrasound Elective for visiting students. It can be either two weeks or four weeks in length. Please contact Dr. Rachel Liu for more information.

The DEM also offers a scholarship for visiting students who identify as underrepresented in medicine. If interested, please include the following information with your scholarship application:
