Medical students in emergency departments and patient length of stay
from Science 2.0
An analysis of more than 1.3 million emergency department visits found an increase in patient length of stay of approximately 5 minutes associated with the presence of medical students in the emergency department, which was statistically significant but likely too small to be of clinical relevance, according to a study in the Dec. 8 issue of JAMA, a theme issue on medical education.
