EMTs are part of the rapidly expanding branch of the health care profession known as EMS (Emergency Medical Services). The Emergency Medical Technician IV is a health care professional that possesses special knowledge and skills in pre-hospital emergency medicine. They act as the eyes, ears, and hands of the physician at the hospital. The EMT IV renders basic life support to injured or ill patients at the scene, which continues while transporting them to the hospital. EMTs are in radio contact with the physician at the hospital at all times.
EMT training is a combination of classroom instruction and ambulance clinical experience. Upon successful completion of the course, students are eligible to sit for the national Registry/State of Tennessee EMT written and practical examinations.
