Medical students are encouraged to rotate with our service, especially if you are interested in applying to our program. Students will be able to experience emergency department care settings as well as work closely with residents and attending physicians.


M4's or OM4's will be given intern-level responsibilities in patient care while under the supervision of an emergency medicine faculty member or resident. The degree of responsibility for patient care delegated to a medical student will vary based on a number of factors, including the nature of the patient’s illness, nature of the procedure to be done, and the level and abilities of the medical student. Med students are expected to attend all EM conferences and student lectures during their rotation.


Students will be evaluated using their own medical school criteria and evaluation form or our standard resident and faculty evaluation form. 





Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center-New Orleans only allows our program to accept 4th-year student rotations from AAMC-accredited or COCA-accredited medical schools.
