The Department of Emergency Medicine provides basic life support training and physical diagnosis instruction to M.D. Year 2 students. M.D. Year 3 students receive advanced cardiac life support training and participate in a suture laboratory to learn suture techniques. A mandatory rotation in emergency medicine for all senior students takes place at Detroit Medical Center hospitals or other affiliated hospitals. The fourth year rotation is designed to familiarize the student with:

  1. the evaluation, assessment and stabilization of patients with urgent medical problems;
  2. invasive and noninvasive procedures routinely used in the emergency department;
  3. and management of acutely-ill patients in a timely manner.

Graduate medical education includes two three-year emergency medicine residency programs, based at the Detroit Medical Center (Detroit Receiving Hospital and Sinai-Grace Hospital). Both pro- grams are fully accredited.
