M4 Elective

The Emory University Department of Emergency Medicine also offers an M4 elective rotation.  The curriculum for this rotation is the same as the curriculum for the M4 clerkship rotation.  Emory University Department of Emergency Medicine reserves the right to limit the number of students from any individual institution. 

Emory University's policy and requirements for all visiting students can be found on the Undergraduate Education Application page Emory University utilizes the AAMC Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) (http://services.aamc.org/20/vsas) for all electives.  Please make sure all of requirements listed in the policy and requirements link are met.  One of the requirements this year is a letter of intent.  This letter must explain why you would like to participate in our program.  It must be uploaded to the VSAS with your application.  For schools not utilizing the VSAS you are required to follow the instructions on the Undergraduate Education Application Page (link is above), meet all of the requirements including the letter of intent.  

The calendars for academic year 2019 is provided below.  All clerkship blocks start on Monday and end on Friday. The September 2018 and January 2019 blocks are the only exception.  All visiting students must apply through the VSAS.  The VSAS is schedule to open mid-March 2018.

We are not accepting international students at this time.

Due to the highly structured nature of the clerkship.  We are not able to accommodate requests for other start and end dates.
