The emergency room is a fast-moving, fluid machine, as should be the ED oral presentation. The third or fourth year medical student ought to be able to deliver a coherent patient story in <3 minutes, interview and manage 4-10 patients per shift, and give a smooth consult or admission presentation at any point during their shift, even on a patient that was interviewed hours ago. This is a difficult task for medical students to learn. This book quickens that learning process by providing an organizing framework and introducing the medical student to the gamut of labs, imaging studies, tools, and dispositions commonly ordered within the emergency department. All net proceeds from this book go towards increasing diversity in medicine through our MCAT Scholarship Course and similar projects.
