For Medical Students

The Emergency Medicine Clerkship Primer is a handbook written by many of the members of CDEM as a handbook for students to navigate and succeed in their Emergency Medicine rotation. Editor, David Wald.

“The focus of Emergency Medicine Clerkship Primer: A Manual for Medical Students is to assist medical students throughout their emergency medicine clerkship. Although the target audience for this manual is primarily junior and senior medical students, we believe that emergency medicine interns and off-service residents will benefit from the majority of the topics reviewed. Our goal is to produce a high-quality, professional guide that highlights the uniqueness of our specialty. This guide should provide the reader with a detail-oriented approach to thinking like an emergency physician, essentially a ‘how to’ manual.”

For Clerkship Directors

Similarly the Medical Student Educator Handbook serves as a roadmap for the clerkship director or anyone educating medical students. This was also written by the CDEM membership and edited by Rob Rogers and Siamak Moayedi.

“The goal of this book is to assist emergency medicine faculty interested in medical student education in their efforts to develop a more successful emergency medicine clerkship based on highlighted best practices. This book is intended to offer the reader tools to deal with the challenges of running a successful emergency medicine clerkship, including addressing administrative and political considerations, promoting faculty, supporting faculty involvement, determining methods for evaluation, and developing novel teaching tools. We envision its use as a reference for up-to-date, practical information.”
