A Message to our Medical Students

Undergraduate Medical Education

"The Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to the education and training of Upstate University medical students. The volume of sick and undifferentiated patients that are seen in the Emergency Department each day ensures a broad clinical exposure during each Clerkship rotation. Medical students are exposed to the treatment of complex trauma cases, critical medical and surgical patients as well as to difficult social and ethical issues involved in each patient's care. From these experiences, you will grow in your education and training as a medical student no matter what your future medical specialty of choice may be"
