The mission of Emergency Medicine Interest Group, EMIG, is to provide meaningful exposure, hands on experience, and preparation for rotation/residency application in Emergency Medicine.
EM is a multi-faceted, fast paced, cutting edge field which treats anyone with anything, anywhere, and anytime. It includes hospital, pre-hospital, wilderness, and tactical medicine as well as many diverse sub-specializations. It is a front-line specialty that interacts with the community heavily. As such, we also seek to facilitate that community education and involvement for our club members. Resourcefulness, decisiveness, and teamwork are defining virtues in EM. Through skills workshops, simulations, and guest lectures we seek to give students hands on experience in developing these traits highly sought by residency program directors. In addition, we provide exposure and experiences through our affiliations with national EM organizations, ACOEP and EMRA.
Wilderness Medicine Subcommittee:
This subcommittee organizes events and discussions that are designed to foster students’ interests and passions in wilderness medicine. The subcommittee will work to coordinate events that challenge its members to try new things as they experience a unique opportunity to deliver emergency medical care in demanding and remote regions.
