Maricopa Medical Center is a high volume Level I Trauma Center centrally located in Phoenix. The high acuity of this urban hospital will provide the greatest exposure to the multifaceted specialty of Emergency Medicine. The fourth year medical students will have an opportunity to orchestrate the care of patients with obstetrical, surgical, pediatric, and complex medical problems. The students will work under the direct supervision of the attending staff. Senior residents will also be available to supervise the student's performance of clinical procedures.
As a medical student, you will be expected to see and evaluate patients in the Emergency Department during the prearranged schedule. After evaluation of the patient, you will be expected to present the history, physical exam, assessment and plan to the attending. Afterwards the attending staff will see and evaluate the patient with you.
During this rotation, you will have every opportunity to perform various medical and surgical procedures. We encourage participation and will evaluate the level of skill demonstrated during performance of procedures such as wound care and suturing, orthopedic splinting, lumbar punctures, and incision and drainage of cutaneous abscesses. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
