Emergency Medicine Clerkship:

Brown welcomes all students interested in a career in Emergency Medicine to participate in its Emergency Medicine Clerkship. Students will rotate primarily at the Anderson Emergency Department at Rhode Island Hospital, and The Miriam Hospital Emergency Department. While working at Rhode Island Hospital, students will have the opportunity to work dedicated shifts in trauma and critical care. If desired, shifts will also be made available in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Hasbro Children's Hospital. This combination of experiences: a regional referral/trauma center, a community hospital, and a dedicated pediatric hospital, will afford students a comprehensive view of the depth and diversity of Emergency Medicine.  


During the rotation, students will be held to the performance expectations of an EM intern. They will be the primary provider for their assigned patients and will be expected to develop differential diagnoses while simultaneously recognizing and treating acute changes in clinical status. Students will also deepen their understanding of the field of Emergency Medicine via supplementary educational materials provided throughout the rotation. Students will attend resident didactic sessions, as well as dedicated sessions in the simulation center focused on improving their procedural and clinical skills.

Diversity in Medicine Scholarship


We are excited to offer the Brown Emergency Medicine Visiting Clerkship Program to qualified students from underrepresented groups in medicine. The program is co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University through the Diversity in Medicine Visiting Student Scholarship.  


A fourth-year medical student from an underrepresented group in medicine, who is in good academic standing at a US accredited medical school is the ideal applicant. Students must have completed all core clerkships at their home institution. We encourage students to apply to rotate for one 4-week block between July and October of their fourth year. During their time here, students will have dedicated and individualized mentorship focused on leadership and career development. The Brown Emergency Medicine Visiting Clerkship Program offers a stipend of $1,000 to cover travel costs and living expenses during the clerkship month. Interested students should email
