Welcome to the home page of the University of Kentucky Emergency Medicine Interest Group! Our highly active organization is comprised of medical students from all four years who are interested in pursuing Emergency Medicine as a specialty. We have hands-on monthly meetings to practice suturing, managing a code, tactical response, and other relevant skills, all taught by veterans of the field. In other meetings, we invite speakers to tell us about the worlds of emergency medicine and critical care. Membership is open to any student at UK CoM with $20 dues payment at the beginning of the year. Come join us for some of the most amazing educational opportunities medical school has to offer!
To arrange your “shadow” shifts, please sign up for a shift on the EM Shadowing Calendar. The EM attending physicians have volunteered to let you rotate with them. You can use the schedules below to see what shifts the these attendings are working to select a shift. Check the online shadowing calendar sign ups to see if that shift is available. Then sign up and you’re all set to get your shadow on.
Be sure to attend an ER Orientation session before your first shift. If you have not done this, you can contact Shirlly Zhou. If you have any questions please contact her.

This is a great shadowing opportunity for anyone going into emergency medicine. A few of our EMIG officers had the opportunity to shadow with UK’s trauma patient substance abuse counselors. It was such a great experience we wanted to make sure the EMIG member had the chance to share in this experience. This is an opportunity to get a very personal glimpse into the lives of substance abusers and learn practical tips for how to most effectively interact with substance abuse patients. I’ve found this experience very useful for working with substance abuse patient in the ER, so we hope you enjoy this new shadowing opportunity.
This clinical experience is for students to have an opportunity to learn about problems of substance abuse and brief interventions and motivational interviewing techniques from mental health care professionals working in an acute care setting.
