INTEGRIS Health Southwest Medical Center emergency medicine clerkship offers a unique, fast-paced learning environment with high acuity and patient volume. While on shift, medical students have the opportunity to interact with residents of various levels of training as well as directly with teaching faculty. As the only training program based at INTEGRIS  Health Southwest Medical Center, rotators work alongside emergency medicine residents and all EM-boarded faculty. Staffing ratios provide for numerous interactions with residents and a variety of faculty. During clerkship rotations, students have opportunities to assist with several procedures and often perform supervised procedures themselves.

"I have learned more in my month at your program than any other rotation in medical school."


Medical students participate in resident didactic sessions held on Wednesdays and specially focused medical student didactic sessions. These sessions are led by upper-level residents and faculty preceding each resident's didactic session. In addition to these sessions, patient encounters are used to stimulate mini-lectures and learning opportunities while on shift.

"Your residents are the best I have worked with; they were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable."


Our facility serves a culturally and socioeconomically diverse population in south Oklahoma City and is also a referral center for hospitals across the state. With high volume and patient acuity, INTEGRIS Health Southwest Medical Center provides a unique learning experience representative of the practice setting where most emergency physicians spend their careers.

Medical students are welcome throughout the year except July. The months of August through December are reserved for MS4 students. Contact the EM Residency Supervisor for further details.
