As fourth year medical students complete their student education and prepare for the next phase of their medical education, the William Maul Measey Institute for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety (ICS) offers learning opportunities in which to practice skills and critical thinking. The Emergency Medicine clerkship focuses on the basics--airway, breathing and circulation. Students participate in an airway session and then progress to clinical scenarios where they are required to use their skills in order to stabilize their patient. These final simulation experiences help to prepare students for their upcoming role as medical interns.
As part of their fourth year emergency medicine clerkship, students actively participate in several simulation sessions. The sessions include an introduction to basic and advanced airway management and advanced cardiac life support.
The focus of basic and advanced airway management includes:
