Pre-Hospital Medicine

Residents participate in a variety of EMS activities starting with the intern EMS rotation. During this time residents engage in EMS ride-alongs, observe dispatch operations, and work in conjunction with EMS medical administration in activities such as quality assurance, case reviews, and large event planning. Additionally, each resident is trained and provides medical control for Boston EMS and has the opportunity to volunteer at major events such as the Boston Marathon finish line. Many residents have used elective time to work on QI and research projects with Boston EMS or rotate with Boston MedFlight to learn more about critical care and air transport.
