The overall vision for the Emergency Medicine Rotation is to provide the Internal Medicine resident with skills in the acute assessment and stabilization of critically ill patients. The rotation will also provide the experience needed to work up undifferentiated conditions. While this is a PGY 2 rotation the Resident should be aware of expectations of a PGY 1 intern since they will not have worked exclusively in the ER until now. Quickly demonstrating mastery of the PGY 1 expectations will be essential to feeling successful by the completion of this rotation.ScheduleGoals & Objectives
