The Emergency Medicine Interest Group (EMIG) is a student organization at East Tennessee State University’s James H. Quillen College of Medicine. This group will work closely with the Emergency Department at Johnson City Medical Center (JCMC), Bristol Regional Hospital, and with local Emergency Medicine Boarded Physicians as well as local EMS in order to foster and develop awareness and interest in the specialty of Emergency Medicine amongst the medical student population; to facilitate interested students to develop highly competitive Residency Applications; to assist in the education of medical students in areas of medicine specifically related to Emergency Medicine. EMIG is a highly active group and are always looking for fun and innovative ways to increase our student’s awareness of emergency medicine and foster growth in that. EMIG typically hosts multiple residency directors from many highly competitive programs for presentation and Q&A sessions, skills workshops, and our annual EMS XTLS Conference. The involved students who make up EMIG have also worked hard to build a support base amongst local emergency providers & physicians enabling our members to often get time outside of class learning from those that live this exciting field everyday.
