Practicing medicine has always been a dream of mine. I had no idea where I wanted to start and didn't know specifically how I wanted to achieve this goal. I knew I needed to get patient contact hours and I always had a passion for helping people. I saw Motlow State was offering a summer course in Emergency Medical Services (EMS), so I decided to take a leap of faith and register for it. This was probably the best decision I have ever made. I gained experience, friends, and a new family in EMS.
