Medical Student Rotations

The emergency departments at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospitals in Corpus Christi include busy regional trauma, stroke and cardiac centers with a wide mix of patient presentations. Students have the opportunity to evaluate and treat acutely ill patients as they present to the ED and follow them through their emergency department stay.

SLOEs available upon request for all rotations except Surgical Trauma Critical Care Sub-Internship.

We offer several four-week Emergency Medicine rotations to medical students. In addition to direct patient care, students participate in simulation laboratories and weekly residency conferences. They enhance their medical knowledge through student-oriented reading assignments, procedure labs, and case conferences. Students have the opportunity to ride with the Corpus Christi Fire Department EMS.

Medical students benefit from a rich clinical patient experience at CHRISTUS Spohn. We encourage students to assume responsibility for the patient care they provide and feel valued as members of the healthcare team. The faculty and resident physicians are dedicated and enthusiastic teachers. Our patient population, combined with numerous procedural and learning opportunities, make our program a great medical student experience. Over half of each residency class consists of physicians who chose to rotate with us as medical students.
