The Emergency Medicine Interest Group is a group of first and second year medical students who work with physicians from the UCLA Emergency Departments to learn both clinical skills and to explore opportunities in Emergency Medicine. Residents and physicians from the UCLA Emergency Department help teach students skills such as suturing, splinting, starting IVs, intubation, and ultrasound. The group also meets to discuss topics about Emergency Medicine, such as planning for residency, wilderness medicine, career choices in Emergency Medicine, and much more. The interest group leaders ensure that students have access to information regarding national organizations like ACEP and AAEM. EMIG also encourages participation in emergency medicine conferences throughout Southern California.
