How to get involved in EM?

  1. DEM Year 4 (GEM3) EM Rotation
    • This placement is intergrated into UCC’s fourth year curriculum – this involves a two-week placement in the Emergency Department.
    • You will be here for a total of nine clinical days which will involve a shift pattern, and there will be one day of formal teaching to include group work, practical procedures, and didactic sessions covering topics specific to care of the Emergency Department patient.
  2. Student Selected Electives
    • We have capacity to welcome a limited amount of students each year to complete their summer electives with ourselves in CUH ED. This is a great opportunity to have a bit more time to experience EM outside of the standard curriculum- for more information contact XXXXXXX.
  3. Research Opportunities
    • CUH EM has a proud culture of research and quality improvement, through EIRN.
    • We are happy to support and supervise medical student projects in Emergency Medicine for your undergraduate Final Year Project
    • There are always research projects underway within the department – feel free to join us at our weekly EIRN meeting to get involved!
