Education Programs

University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville Department of Emergency Medicine faculty members, residents and fellows can participate in any of the division's field operations. For further information on participating, please contact us.

Current field operations include:

EMS Medical Direction

Faculty from our department provide EMS medical direction and training for a number of fire and rescue agencies, which include ground rescue operations in five Northeast Florida counties and ShandsCair aeromedical service.

In addition, our faculty provide medical direction through service on the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Medical Advisory Council, membership in the Emergency Medical Auxiliary for the City of Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department and EMT and paramedic training agencies at community colleges.

Each emergency medicine resident completes a one-month EMS rotation, including interaction with fire rescue crews and aboard the TraumaOne helicopter based at UF Health Jacksonville. There are numerous other opportunities throughout their residency to become involved with EMS agencies and training programs.

Military Medicine

The department's physicians have the unique opportunity to learn about military medicine from medics-in-training for the United States Military's Special Operations Forces stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C.

These medics rotate through the department four times a year with the purpose of learning emergency medicine and trauma techniques from our doctors. In return they teach our physicians about military medicine and unique combat wounds.
