This episode was the conception of Hilary Gates who is the Senior Editorial and Program Director for EMS World. In response to recent position statements, she assembled a panel to discuss degree requirements for paramedics and was kind enough to include me in this collaborative project. We recorded from the National Association of EMS Physicians Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.
The guests in this episode are true leaders in every sense of the word. Unafraid to step into heated waters to speak without hesitation about what they believe is best for paramedics and their patients. Sitting at the table with them for an hour was an absolute honor. They know what this podcast is and that a group of tremendously bright and educated medics are listening.
