Education

Faculty and fellows are responsible for the EMS educational experience for over 54 Emory emergency medicine residents and host a medical student elective.  Continuing education is provided for paramedics and EMTs in the greater metro Atlanta area.  In collaboration with Emory CEPAR, the Section serves the community as a regional National Disaster Life Support Training Center. Section faculty also developed the Clinical Biosafety Transport Training Program for prehospital providers.

The Section recently participated in the Development of a national pilot educational program for EMS fellows in collaboration with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, national EMS educators and state and territorial EMS officials. The pilot program was recently hosted in Atlanta. See the article in NAEMSP News.
