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.
Take a listen as we talk about this unique program, its goals and answer any misconceptions about it.
Stay tuned at the end of the broadcast while we answer our very first listener question!
