NSUCOM EMS Club Information

 

 

The Nova Southeastern University Emergency Medicine Society is dedicated to the exploration of emergency medicine as a future specialty. Through interaction with the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians, NSUCOM-EMS members gain valuable insight into emergency medical career paths. The NSUCOM EMS club features regular guest speakers. Recent topics have included:


Residency Q&A
Airway Management
Trauma Care
Physician Assistant's role in trauma/EM
Pediatric Critical Care and Resuscitation
Toxicology

 

Additionally, the EMS club sponsors skills clinics. First and second year medical students (as well as PA students) will have the opportunity to practice lifesaving techniques like endotracheal intubation, defibrillation, and intra-osseous access for critically ill pediatric patients. In conjunction with the surgery club, the club offers a suture clinic. This year will bring more opportunities for increased emergency medical knowledge. A limited number of students will be able to participate in ride alongs with local fire rescue agencies as a preclinical preceptorship elective. NSUCOM EMS members gain valuable patient assessment experience through participation in community health screenings. NSUCOM EMS members last year volunteered at health fairs, CPR day, and at senior care centers. We welcome your input and suggestions. Please contact any of the officers for more information! See you at the next meeting!
