How To BS Your Way Through EMS School

Lets face it. You can bullsh*t your way through EMT or Paramedic school. Do the bare minimum, skate by the exams, play off your class mates and pass.

Its not hard. I’ve seen people do it. Heck I know kids getting college degrees that have bullshitted their way through. Never taking a note or cracking open a book.

But when does that come back to haunt you? This weeks Office Hours talks all about when that half ass-ary comes back to teach you a valuable lesson.

Take a listen below and be honest. Have you ever BS’d your way through a class, a course or exam? Did it really help you past that moment?

I am confident it most likely did not.

Are You Stuck In The EMS Pipeline?

Life kinda puts you into pipelines. You enter one way and expect to eventually come out the other end another way. Like school for instance. You start high school or college a freshman and expect and work towards the goal of senior and graduation.

EMS is no different in that we also end up in a pipeline. However for many of us, we get stuck in it along with a lot of others making seeing and working towards that end, that goal much harder.

This weeks episode talks about this and gives some insight on getting out of the pipeline. More importantly how to be ready when that opening shows up.

When They Ask For A Doctor and You Show Up

EMS This is a great reboot session with Greg Friese and remember that EMS Boot Camp sessions can now be found at EMSSEO.com.
For this episode we ask: “Have you ever helped the man down, stopped at an MVA or even performed CPR while off duty?”

As EMS professionals we sometimes find ourselves in a position to act while off duty.
For this Office Hours Greg and Jim talked a little about doing just that. You never know when someone may call out “Is there a doctor in the house?”. You would probably be surprised that they would prefer an EMT anyway.

I would love to hear your off duty story. Share it below in the comments.
