The rotation is offered in four-week blocks that coincide with the UCSF academic calendar (http://meded.ucsf.edu/ume/electives-calendar). The rotation can accommodate two students per month. Positions are filled on a first-come first-served basis, and at the discretion of the Director of Emergency Ultrasound
As with everything in medicine, our clerkship response to COVID-19 is constantly evolving. We were thrilled to welcome our UCSF students back to the rotation this summer after an initial pause in all student presence in the department. Our ability to offer space to visiting students is dependent on current covid-19 conditions in the county as well as hospital operations. From a clinical standpoint, our policies regarding students interacting with covid-19 PUIs follow those of UCSF; at present, students do not evaluate PUIs. We appreciate your patience during this time. Specific questions can be directed to the clerkship coordinator and director via email.
