The Emergency Medicine Interest Group is a student organization whose mission is to expose students to Emergency Medicine as a career and to give students an opportunity to learn skills commonly used in emergency situations. To this end, EMIG sponsors blood drawing, suture, knot-tying, IV and EKG labs, and emergency room observation time. EMIG also sponsors talks and luncheons with Emergency Medicine residents and faculty on topics such as applying for Emergency Medicine residency and current issues within Emergency Medicine. EMIG members are actively involved in research in the emergency department and have attended Emergency Medicine physicians' national conferences.
