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.

Join us as we talk about this unique program, its goals and answer any misconceptions about it.
