The department's EMS physicians provide Medical Direction for EMS and Fire agencies seeking medical oversight, Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) and education by specially trained and qualified physicians.

Five members of the Department have fellowship training in EMS. Our EMS physicians serve on REMAC, SEMAC and the SEMSCo and include members of county, state and national committees. The Regional Medical Director is also a member of the group.

We provide CQI and education utilizing the latest methodologies; including distance learning and our physicians are well versed in medical simulation. Agencies of all types and sizes will find a match with one of our specially qualified EMS physicians, while enjoying the benefit of our physicians' combined expertise.
