EME 40100 - Junior Internship in Emergency Medicine

Cr Hrs: 6
Session Length: 4 weeks


This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 6 credit hours. The student will function as a junior intern with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in all of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. Junior Internships in Medicine are intended to put the student in a more direct role in patient care similar to internship but closely supervised and directed. It is expected that the student will be responsible for recording the principal data base (with resident or faculty review and counter signature), developing an evaluation and treatment plan, and writing orders on patients (to be reviewed, altered if necessary, and signed by the resident or faculty prior to their implementation). These junior internships may be either in general internal medicine or in sub-specialty medicine; however, whether on general medicine or sub-specialty ward, the student’s responsibility is for learning about the care of patients from the overall viewpoint of internal medicine rather than specifically studying a particular internal medicine sub-specialty. EME-40100 enrollment preference is given to UT students who are interested in careers in Emergency Medicine over those who are not during the months of May-October.
