Now for Some History...
The concept of Northeastern University Emergency Medical Service Group (NUEMS IG) started in the Summer of 2006 when three Northeastern University students joined together with the hopes of creating a student-run Emergency Medical Service on campus to provide support to Northeastern University Police Department (NUPD). Nearly three years later, during the Fall Semester of 2008, and after endless proposal drafts and administrative meetings, the student group NUEMS IG was formed. Click here to read our Constitution.
Though the organization and its founders have generally encountered overwhelming support from administration, faculty, and medical directors in the Boston area, we are still in talks with NUPD, University Health and Counseling Services, and the Athletics Department to determine how our members can safely administer medical care to the NU community. Our hope is that NUEMS IG will act as an adjunct to NUPD in emergency responses on campus as well as medical coverage of Northeastern-sanctioned events. By doing this, the group would offer valuable experiential learning and hands-on experience to Northeastern University students interested in emergency medical services and leadership while providing quality public services to the Northeastern University Community. In the past, NUEMSIG has provided EMS coverage to events such as NU men's basketball games. This year, we will begin providing stand-by service to Men's Hockey.
However, NUEMSIG strives to go beyond EMS coverage. Also of importance to NUEMSIG are educational opportunities and public safety, both for its members and the NU community at large. As part of our goals, we strive to offer CPR training, EMS awareness events, skills maintenance opportunities, as well as facilitating State-approved continuing education, and EMT certification. Check our events for further information as it is available.
Currently, a majority of the members of NUEMS's Executive Board work for 911 ambulance services or at major Boston hospital emergency departments.

The group is currently discussing ways to expand our current clinical opportunities with the Northeastern University Police Department and University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) to provide emergency services in cooperation with NUPD Officers at University Sanctioned events, similar to MIT EMS, Boston University EMS, Boston College Eagle EMS, and many other universities throughout the country. NUEMS has potential to provide an outstanding standard of care and quality medical services to the Northeastern University Community.
