  1. The funny thing is that the show that most closely resembles real medicine is Scrubs.
  2. And back to the OP, the answer is, it depends. EMS is very different from one location to another. In my paid position I worked 8 hour shifts and was off on time, most of the time. As for EMT class, it's really basic. If you can pass high school, you have a really good chance of passing EMT class. Most EMT books are written on an 8th grade level. As for the calls, yeah, you'll get your saves in once in awhile but most calls are mundane calls that don't need an ambulance. In some places you will be doing renal roundup or interfacility transports. It's not the way they make it look on TV.
  3. Sorry to hear about the test but good for you with sticking to it. I don't know anything about where you are but maybe try a full length course. Just remember that when you take your exams you have to do it based on what the book says.
  4. Welcome and I hope your test went well.
  5. OK, good sir, if we are going to air our dirty laundry, let air all of it and not just your frilly panties. Ask my opponent who the medical director for Ruff University is. Ask him who it is that is giving these super expanded community paramedic protocols. That's right. It's me. So either way, I win. Your vote doesn't count. It's almost like I have a former president and his wife who is running for president in my back pocket. Carry on sheeple.
  6. Vote for me and I will give everyone expanded standing orders. I don't see my opponent making such promises. All I have heard him say is that we shouldn't change things because this is the way we have always done it.He even went so far as to use the term 'ambulance driver'
  7. Nope. Maybe we should stir the pot a bit. So, who's voting for Osama Bin Laden?
  8. I got ya. Yeah, you can't vote and then complain you didn't know what you were getting yourself into. Educate yourself or don't vote.
  9. In defense of the voters (I don't have enough knowledge to say if it was a good idea or not) if it has never been done before, how can they truly know what it means. It's uncharted territory, but sometimes that's what needs to be done.
  10. Good call. Let's go nuclear and talk about how Brexit will affect the US Presidential race.
  11. I think most people are still here and lurk but just don't post much. Someone needs to start an epic thread that is capable of generating lost of discussion. Should we talk about religion or politics?
  12. It wasn't the biting but yeah, pretty close.
  13. Welcome, and I only bite when asked to.
  14. Getting a job in the hospital will be hit or miss. As for a physician, I don't know of any that specifically hire paramedics. Most just hire MAs. If you are interested in working in the hospital or clinic, why not just work on becoming an RN, PA or MD/DO?
