Emergency and Acute Care
Acute Care training is accomplished through a combination of acute ambulatory care months in both Medicine and Pediatrics clinic, and Emergency Department rotations at Wesley Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center that features over 70,000 visits a year. Wesley also features Kansas' only Pediatric ED. Med/Peds residents do one month as Acute Care Resident for Medicine, and another for Pediatrics.
Residents also periodically see overflow acute care visits as part of the normally scheduled clinic visits. Emergency Department rotations consist of one month of full ED, and two months of Pediatric ED. Moonlighting opportunities in both the adult and pediatric emergency room and ambulatory acute care settings in the community also exist for interested residents.
