First Year

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 blocks of emergency medicine rotations at both Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and Bridgeport Hospital (BH), as well as intensive care experience at YNHH. The first block of intern year is an orientation consisting of seminars, workshops, lectures, and simulations, and a light schedule in the Emergency Department. Additional time is provided in obstetrics, orthopedics, simulation, anesthesiology and ultrasound.
