Emergency Medicine Interest Group
The Emergency Medicine Interest Group is for students (Years I-IV) interested in exploring emergency medicine as a career choice. This group was formed to provide an avenue of educational outreach and experience in emergency medicine and health care in general. It provides an opportunity to make contacts in the field and to gain clinical experience before beginning Year III.
The WSU SOM Emergency Medicine Interest Group was started by students who were interested in emergency medicine with the goal of providing an avenue for early exposure to clinicians and clinical settings.EMIG gives students an opportunity to meet and shadow EM physicians, practice clinical skills during skills nights, and most importantly, gain an appreciation for emergency medicine and insight into whether EM will be a good fit for a career. With active faculty and coordinator involvement, EMIG is one of the most active interest groups at WSU SOM and is always looking for ways to expand to better meet the interest of its members.
