Opportunities to Teach


The primary goal of the outreach division of ETIG is to facilitate opportunities for medical students to hone their teaching skills and share their passion for medicine with disadvantaged students from the surrounding community. Our focus, in particular, is middle school and high school-aged students. We currently offer workshops to Aurora LIGHTS students, which allow them the opportunity to learn a relevant medical skill from medical students who serve as the instructors for these workshops. In addition to learning a hands-on skill, the students also learn relevant information about the skill’s practical use in medicine through a case study introduced by medical students. The current workshops that we offer include suturing, ultrasound, and casting. By introducing these students to hands-on medical activities early in their education, we hope to instill in these students a passion for medicine that will last far beyond the duration of the workshop. ​​​
