Fourth year Electives

FOURTH YEAR ELECTIVES in EMERGENCY MEDICINE

Fourth year medical students interested in our residency program are encouraged to apply for this rotation. The rotating student will work with the attending faculty as well as the current emergency medicine residents. Applicants must be in good academic standing at their parent school, must have their school’s approval to participate in the desired elective, and must have liability insurance coverage. Visiting student applicants should follow this link for further instructions.

All visiting US medical school students and US Osteopathic medical students apply through VSAS.  Generally, the medical school begins processing of visiting student applications in late May.  For the OFFICIAL application information, required paperwork and deadline information please refer to the SUNY Downstate College of Medicine website. Here is the school’s website:  http://sls.downstate.edu/registrar/visiting/index.html

Additional requirements for (visiting) students applying for an EM elective:

  • USMLE Step 1 score report, either uploaded or within CV.
  • Transcript
  • CV

Please note, we do not offer the research elective for visiting students.

For students interested in applying for EM residency we generally recommend the 4-week EM elective (EMED 4030).  If you would like to request a Departmental EM consensus letter of recommendation (SLOR), you MUST complete the 4-week rotation, EMED 4030.

Special note for International medical school students.  At this time we are NOT able to accommodate any international medical school students due to limited resources.
