Student Emergency Medicine Association
"To promote awareness, interest, and knowledge of the specialty of Emergency Medicine by offering accessible education, training, and activities to medical students, and provide education and outreach to the community."
The Student Emergency Medicine Association (SEMA) currently offers three main methods for students to learn more about Emergency Medicine.
In cooperation with the Departments of Emergency Medicine at Froedtert Hospital and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, SEMA facilitates Emergency Medicine shadowing experiences for current members. SEMA also facilitates ambulance shadowing experiences with Milwaukee Fire Department Paramedic Units.
SEMA offers several presentations throughout the school year. These presentations are designed to introduce students to several different aspects of Emergency Medicine. The presentations vary in topic from the current science and research involving CPR to the history and epidemiology of firearm injury.
Throughout the school year SEMA organizes several opportunities for current members to meet with Emergency Medicine Faculty and Residents. These activities range from social activities to an informal question-and-answer session to a formal dinner.
SEMA is in the process of expanding the organization activities to include more community service projects.
Medical College students who are interested in more information about SEMA should log into their ANGEL account and sign up for SEMA just as you would any other student group. The contact information for the current leadership team will be available on the SEMA ANGEL website. Visiting or prospective students should contact the Medical College of Wisconsin Student Assembly to obtain the contact information for the current SEMA leadership team.
