Tip of the Week: EMS Career Possibilities with Adam Dodson

This week on the show, I want to chat with you about the advantages that come from your hard work in gaining and retaining your paramedic level of education. I have a good friend from my paramedic class that has gone on to some really exciting projects and career moves since we left class for the last time together. Adam Dodson is an educator in Johns Hopkins Medical School, showing their medical students and visiting physicians amazing things with the patient simulators. I got the chance to interview Adam recently over the phone and thought it would be a good look for you at what you can achieve with your EMS education. Here’s that interview with Adam.
