As a member or alumni of the University of Arizona Department of Emergency Medicine, you (and your spouse, kids, etc.) can own your own official department jacket or vest. These are genuine Marmot jackets and vests embroidered with our department logo patch or combined EM & Peds logo patch and optionally with your name. We sell these each fall to alumni at cost plus 50%, which will support half a jacket for one of our incoming interns. You are always welcome to include a larger donation to the residencies and specify how you would like your donation spent, i.e. resident research conference travel support and resident recruitment support, just to name a few.
It’s easy: each summer/fall DEM will reach out to you with ordering information via the alumni listserv. Not sure we have your updated contact info? Let us know here. If you think you've missed the annual order, please contact us to inquire.
As you know, advanced medical training remains a challenging and expensive commitment. State and hospital funding continue to shrink and the budget is roughly 50 percent of what it was when you were a resident. The department is looking to you and the rest of our alumni for help. Your support alleviates financial burdens and helps residents make the most of their time here. It also allows us to recruit the best and brightest, enabling a healthier future. For example, a $500 gift will send a senior resident to ACEP or a resident to SAEM to present their research abstract. These are real experiences that shape these young emergency physicians' careers. Thank you for your support!
