Being an EMS Medical Director, especially in a rural setting, can be a rewarding yet challenging task. In an effort to make this role less challenging, the Minnesota Ambulance Association, in partnership with the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board and funded by the Minnesota Department of Health-Office of Rural Health & Primary Care, has developed a Medical Director’s membership page. On it is the newly developed Medical Director’s web-based educational course which is free of charge.
In the future, this page will be available, as a resource to present new topics in EMS Medical Direction, new topics in EMS leadership, educational opportunities in EMS Medical Direction and options to interact with each other via telecommunication platforms on a regional and state wide basis. Please have a look.
Your feedback on new topics that would be relevant to your work in EMS that could be discussed on this page would be encouraged.
