The USF Medical Response Unit (MRU) is comprised of students from multiple disciplines of study at USF. Officially speaking, the MRU is a multi-departmental collaborative between Student Health Services (SHS), a student organization University Emergency Medicine Student Association (UEMSA), and Student Government. The MRU program functions as a field extension of the SHS clinic with one of their physicians, Dr. Stephen Poff, functioning as Medical Director for the program. UEMSA staffs the MRU with certified Emergency Medical Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, and Paramedics to provision care up to the Basic Life Support level. UEMSA is comprised of students from various undergraduate disciplines such as pre-nursing, nursing, pre-med, pre-pa, and all the various majors and colleges to which these students belong. The approximately 60 MRU student volunteers are majoring in nearly every type of science/pre-health degree offered at USF.
