Department of Emergency Medicine Medical Student Rotation

Welcome to your rotation in emergency medicine at Lehigh Valley Health Network.

The attending staff and residents of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Lehigh Valley Health Network recognize their responsibility to rotating students and visiting residents. We are committed to assisting each learner in attaining a relevant, useful and valuable clinical experience in emergency medicine.

Your rotation provides for direct supervision by our attending physician staff, physician assistants and senior emergency medicine residents. You will have access to a variety of procedure labs and have the option to experience an autopsy, EMS ride-along, and practical ultrasound and toxicology experiences. 

You will spend a shift with a nurse, complete a final exam and be evaluated on your overall performance. Please review the orientation handbook and the four orientation podcasts on the homepage of the student website prior to the start of the rotation. 

All the best,

Deepak Jayant, DO, Clerkship Director

Andrew Koons, DO, Assistant Clerkship Director
