Emergency Medicine Elective Rotations

Welcome to the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. The student rotations are open to all fourth-year medical students at UMMC as well as to all students from accredited allopathic or osteopathic medical schools in the United States wishing to do an externship. At this time, we only accept students from LCME- or AOA-accredited institutions. We are unable to offer rotation availability to foreign- or international medical students.

Our department is dedicated to providing a quality experience for all students. While students in interested in emergency medicine as a career are obviously welcome, we also encourage students not planning on a career in emergency medicine to take advantage of the unique experiences we provide.

The Department of Emergency Medicine offers several fourth-year elective rotations. All electives are 2 weeks or 4  weeks in duration.

  • Emergency Medicine Research
  • Medical Toxicology
  • Wilderness Medicine
