EDIT 2: The video has been reposted. You can access it here, if you have a UW NetID.

On October 6th, we were lucky to have Dr. Susan Stern, professor and division head of emergency medicine at the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center, give a talk to our group. Topics included reasons for choosing EM, information about the upcoming Seattle residency program, issues when applying for residency and clerkships, and other student questions.

We recorded the presentation for people who couldn't be in Seattle, and now it's available online. It includes the introduction of the new EMIG leadership, and the Q/A session at the end. See the video below!
