Adult Emergency Medicine

In their first year, Overlook Family Medicine residents spend one month on the Adult Emergency Medicine rotation. Residents are often the first contact for the patient and are intimately involved in his or her initial evaluation. Closely supervised by emergency department (ED) physicians, residents rotate in the fast track area, providing urgent care to patients with less emergent conditions, and taking cases triaged from the full ED. Most of these interventions are procedural: Residents have the opportunity to perform procedures such as suturing, splinting, I&D’s, and foreign body removal.
