EMIG is an organization composed of UC Irvine medical students who are interested in pursuing careers in emergency medicine (EM). As one of the most active student groups at the UC Irvine School of Medicine, our aim is to connect medical students with information about EM residency and careers in EM. On this site, you will find information about what is going on in emergency medicine at UC Irvine as well as EM in general. We are excited to provide information about one of the newest and most dynamic medical specialties. Welcome to our site!
