Art and Science of Resuscitation
Our two-week simulation selective is rated as one of the best in the medical school. Students in this course review the basic science guiding the principles of resuscitation for a variety of critical-illness disease states while gaining comfort with skills necessary to lead and communicate effectively during a resuscitation. The course includes lectures from an interdisciplinary group of simulation leaders, as well as significant hands-on learning activities, and it is offered each spring.
Emergency medicine interest group
The Emergency Medicine Interest Group (EMIG) introduces medical students to the field of emergency medicine and fosters students’ interest in the specialty. Our function is to provide learning opportunities in the field of Emergency Medicine, create relationships with emergency physicians at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics, and provide information and guidance to students interested in pursuing a career in Emergency Medicine.
Faculty and residents at the Department of Emergency Medicine lead annual airway and ultrasound workshops for EMIG students and are may serve as mentors for students interested in exploring a career pathway in medical simulation.
