Emergency Medicine Club's goal is to provide members opportunities to gain a better understanding of the field of emergency medicine while also developing critical thinking and procedural skills that can be used in all fields of medicine. This includes a focus on interactive events consisting of speakers, hands-on workshops and volunteering opportunities. 

Within these events, the club is focused on continuing to build various relationships including (but not limited to) the OHIO physician assistant program; OhioHealth (specifically Doctors Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program and Riverside); Columbus community members via volunteering at a variety of events in the area (Columbus Marathons, the Arnold Sports Festival, OSUCOM Ultrafest, Dublin Irish Festival); other osteopathic medical schools at the regional/national level (the ACOEP National Scientific Assembly); Washington Township EMS; and EMRA (Emergency Medicine Resident's Association).
