I’ve had the opportunity this spring to be involved in something really cool. I’ve been involved with a new group, called the American College of Paramedics. Here’s the idea – Paramedics in the United States becoming a self-regulating body, like is seen in many Commonwealth countries.
From the website:
The title of “Fellow of American College of Paramedicine” represents an EMS practitioner’s commitments to clinical excellence in the prehospital environment, the promotion of evidence-based EMS practice, and development of the EMS profession into that of true allied health professionals. Candidates for FACPM will have demonstrated the following during a 5-year candidacy period
I’m proud to say I’m part of the fellowship committee, and the Board members seem to be working diligently to make this happen. I think this is a great next step for American EMS. What do you think?
