3.   To become familiar with the management of both medical and surgical patients (especially laceration repair, minor trauma, and minor orthopedic injuries and splinting) (Practice based learning and improvement).

4.   To learn about common procedures, including: slit lamp examination, central line placement, airway techniques, emergency ultrasound, dental blocks, wrist blocks, foot blocks, irrigation and debridement, and ACLS algorithms (Practice-based learning and improvement, patient care).
