Medical Student Rotations at Seattle Children's

PEDS 625 Emergency Medicine

A Note from the Division of Emergency Medicine at Seattle Children’s

We are pleased you have signed up to do a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Advanced Patient Clerkship.  During this rotation we expect 4th year students to strive to function at the level of an intern.  This means that you will have ED shifts scheduled similar to our interns (days, evenings, and weekends).

To prepare for your elective, please find a pediatric ER textbook of your choice to reference for the month.  Some popular textbooks are by Barkin, Strange and Fleisher & Ludwig.  Topics that you should familiarize yourself with prior to the rotation include pediatric abdominal pain, bronchiolitis and asthma, pediatric fractures and neonatal fevers.  As the month progresses, I encourage you to read further about different topics that you encounter during your shifts.

Tamar Anderson in the ED offices will be in charge of setting your schedule.

Prior to your first shift, please contact me via email so that we can review expectations for your elective.  I look forward to hearing from you.

First Day at Children’s:  The Medical Student Office will send instructions on where and when to arrive at the SCH Graduate Medical Education for required sign-in and badging. After you have completed this step, you will attend a required orientation in the Children’s ED with the students on MED EM 609, the required Emergency Medicine Clerkship.  This orientation takes place on the first day of the rotation, typically at 11:30AM.

Where to report: After you have completed the sign-in and badging process in the Medical Student Office and required ED orientation, you are clear to attend your first shift in the ED.
