EMS Faculty

The faculty of the EMS Institute consists of Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Nurses, Physician Assistants and Doctors; who come from various backgrounds, including the Emergency Medical Services, Police Department, and the Fire Department. Our staff of  educators have well over 400 years of experience in pre-hospital patient care and many years in educating both pre-hospital and in-hospital patient care providers. The New York State Department of Health Bureau of EMS  certifies all of our instructor coordinators and lab instructors. The continued educational development of our staff is crucial to us so that we may provide our students with the best educational experience possible. We constantly work to improve ourselves and strive to learn new ways to disseminate information to our student body.
