EM Interest Group

Our medical students have an Emergency Medicine Interest Group which helps to organize students and build strong relationships between them. This organization is open to all medical students and has monthly meetings designed to increase interest in Emergency Medicine. There are guest lecturers and students are encouraged to participate in various residency activities. There is also a mentoring program that allows medical students to work with the Emergency Medicine Residents and faculty while on duty in the Emergency Department.

Wilderness Medicine Interest Group

The Wilderness Medicine Interest Group meets on a monthly basis to learn about topics such as Trauma, Water Safety, and Lightning Injuries. There are also skill labs, so students get hands-on experience, stabilizing and transporting patients. Email kjbylow@uams.edu to be added to the mailing list.
