Sub-Internship in Emergency Medicine

We harness the combined excellence of two academic Departments of Emergency Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian, Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University, to provide an unparalleled experience for medical students seeking a career in emergency medicine.

Overview

The sub-internship in Emergency Medicine is an immersive four-week experience reflecting the breadth of knowledge and responsibilities of an emergency medicine intern. The course is designed for fourth-year medical students who are considering a career in Emergency Medicine.

Curriculum

This four-week course includes clinical shifts in the adult and pediatric Emergency Departments at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine. Students will also experience the pre-hospital environment through a ride along with NY Presbyterian EMS, dedicated emergency ultrasound teaching, telemedicine, and other specialized services within the two departments of Emergency Medicine.

There is a substantial didactic component to augment the clinical experience: a series of weekly dedicated sub-intern lectures, hands-on workshops, and small group sessions, in addition to the weekly residency academic conferences.

How to Apply

Fourth-year medical students from Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons should apply through the OASIS system at https://oasis.cumc.columbia.edu. Students from Weill Cornell Medicine and all other medical schools should apply through the visiting student application service (VSAS) at https://www.aamc.org/vsas/.
