Undergraduate

Education-Day

The Department of Emergency Medicine is involved in undergraduate teaching through all four years of the UBC MD Program. Our faculty participate in Years 1 & 2 teaching, and we offer a limited number of observer shifts (2) for interested students in those pre-clinical years at many sites.  We teach a Wound Management Course during the Year 3 Orientation.  UBC was the first medical school in Canada to provide a four-week Year 3 EM Core Clerkship for all students (now 288).   The clerkship is delivered at 14 teaching sites across four clinical academic campuses and an additional 6 Integrated Community Clerkship Sites.  Students consistently rate the EM clerkship the most highly.  We also offer additional 4 week electives in Year 4 to both UBC and out of province students.
