Hey I know Walking Dead is on tonight and all, but just before then I invite you to come check out the live podcast. Tonight's topic? Exploring Direct To Medic This week we are joined by Vincent A. Papasodero. He is the Program Manager from the Emergency Medical Institute, North Shore-LIJ Health System. They have started a unique program that is called Direct to Medic. Students with no prior EMS training or experience will enter the DTM Program through a traditional Emergency Medical Technician Course. It is a 20-month program, which will afford candidates the opportunity to become credentialed as a New York State Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic. Join us as we talk about this unique program, its goals and answer any misconceptions about it. You can listen, call in toll free or chat live with us. Tonight Sunday, 11/24 at 7 PM EST http://www.blogtalkradio.com/emss/2013/11/25/exploring-the-direct-to-medic-program Hope to see you there.
I am currently finishing up with an AEMT program in Atlanta, GA. My wife and I are moving to the Washington D.C. area next summer and I wanted to continue on to Paramedic Program. Two programs I found near D.C were at North Virginia and Prince Edward's Community Colleges. I was wondering if anyone could provide any info on the quality of their paramedic programs or if there were any other good programs in the area? I also wanted to know if it would be an easy transition from AEMT to paramedic in that area with all the NREMT levels in the process of changing. (Georgia just switched from EMT-I 85 to AEMT, as far as I know the NOVA area is still working with EMT-I 99 and EMT-P) Any information about programs in the area would be greatly appreciated!!
