[152 Hours]
The Critical Concepts rotation provides exposure to critical topics in patient care, procedural skills, medical knowledge, and disease management using a variety of teaching modalities: traditional didactics, patient simulations, on-line interactive modules, quizzes, and direct clinical experience in emergency and ICU settings. This rotation provides every senior medical student, regardless of career choice, with a broad and solid foundation in the principles and skills needed to care for acute and emergency patients. Having completed their core junior rotations, senior students will be challenged to apply their skills and knowledge to more complicated and critical patient care situations. This rotation will also provide senior students with the opportunity to refine and expand their skills in commonly performed procedures and medical interventions. Furthermore, senior students will develop a more sophisticated understanding of their upcoming roles as resident physicians with increased responsibility to individual patients, to health care team, and to the health care system.
