EMS & Disaster Medicine Elective

Students on the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Disaster Medicine elective learn about pre-hospital care in San Francisco's busy urban EMS system. First-hand experiences with paramedics and dispatchers teach students about critical patient management in the pre-hospital setting. Didactics focus on EMS structure, communication, and disaster management topics. Students design and complete a mentored EMS project during the rotation.|| Comments: 3rd or 4th year medical students. For visiting students, please submit a short statement (500 words) describing your interest in this rotation. || Please note that this 2-week rotation does not count as a formal residency interview, and rotators interested in the UCSF EM Residency will still need to interview.
