Emergency Medical Education Club

The Emergency Medical Education Club is a group intended to introduce students to the field of emergency medicine both as providers and bystanders. During the semester we will have guest speakers come in to discuss different topics such as jobs in the field, medical emergencies and emergency preparedness. We will also offer resources for those interested to further their education. We will bring some resources to campus and we will also bring students to different training events off campus. For example, the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Foundation Conference is an event in which we will meet and discuss topics specifically relating to college students/EMTs across the country.
