Pragmatic Paramedics

Oct 23, 2023

This is the second episode in our education series with Max Dodge, where we discuss education and standards for EMS and why they’re so important to the growth of the industry.

Currently, the highest level of practice for paramedics to attain is literally paramedic. Talk about a ceiling. Sure you can improve your skill set and be a better medic but there’s nothing formal after medic.

Even FP-C, as much as some people want to believe that it’s a step above a “regular” medic isn’t truly a “higher” achievement. It’s more of a sub specialty.

That said, we are advocating that if you’re a medic that you work toward a degree. At this stage I’m happy with an associates but if you have the wherewithal to get a bachelors or can even find a decent school - do so. Thanks for listening and as always, let us know what you think!

Thanks to Max for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk with us and if you’re not following him - go on over and give his page a look.
