Things sure have changed for those taking these new paramedic programs. Yes I am an old medic and change is not an easy thing. I love my paramedic students and provide support in helping them. The problem I see time and again is these paramedic student without EMT experience. On more than one occasion my paramedic students did not know how to get the stretcher out of the ambulance. Spending time showing medic students how to get the stretcher out of an ambulance. How do other field training medics handle these situation? I don't blame the students as they were never shown.
