Emergency Medicine Elective

Morristown Medical Center’s General Emergency Medicine Elective is a four-week program available to medical students throughout the academic year.

Course Description

The rotation offers medical students a challenging clinical experience in emergency medicine in a closely-supervised environment. Morristown Medical has one of the two accredited emergency medicine residency programs in Northern New Jersey, and all of the attending physicians are board-certified in emergency medicine.

Students are expected to work eleven 12-hour shifts, some of which must be at night. Students attend a five-hour conference each Tuesday and ride the Mobile Intensive Care Unit ( MICU) to observe emergency care in the field. We also give all medical students the opportunity to either substitute shifts or add additional shifts to follow our emergency medicine services ( EMS) fellow, ultrasound fellow or work with our attending physicians in hyperbaric medicine.


Students learn the basics of emergency medicine with one-on-one instruction in history taking, physical exams, diagnosis and treatment planning provided by board-certified attending physicians.


Students are evaluated during each shift and in a final, inclusive evaluation.
