The Emergency Medicine eXperience (EMX) is an intense undergraduate internship dedicated to near-peer mentorship across three domains: Undergraduates, Medical Students, and Attending Physicians. While observing clinical cases at the UC Davis Emergency Department, EMX Interns are assigned a medical student preceptor. This creates a unique one-on-one education and mentorship experience for both the EMX Intern and Preceptor.
EMX Interns also attend bimonthly seminars focused on the fundamentals of emergency medicine. Problem-based learning and hands-on workshops are the primary modes of teaching during these seminars. EMX Interns also have the opportunity to present seminar content and clinical cases to their peers via the pre-health student clubs and the Health Professions Advising group at UC Davis’ main campus. EMX advocates for Free Open-Access Medical Education (FAOMed) community and encourages all members to share their knowledge with others.
The Emergency Medicine Xperience also supports medical students interested in emergency medicine through clinical opportunities and EMX Preceptors and monthly conferences led by senior medical students focused on core concepts in emergency medicine, using the CDEM curriculum as guide.
