Overview:

In Episode 17 we tracked down Dr. Jon Jui, 30-year veteran in prehospital medicine and EMS director for Multnomah Co. Oregon (population: 766,135). We expand upon some of the principles covered last month from a different perspective. We will learn about the daily life of a veteran EMS medical director, including its challenges. We will also take a look at some of the potential ways physicians might find themselves involved in direct patient care outside the hospital and gain some insight into the ideology of prehospital medicine in the United States.
