Listen: Traits of an Outstanding EMS Professional in 2019

On the 250th episode and fifth anniversary of the Inside EMS podcast I joined co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson to discuss how the expectations and traits of what makes an outstanding EMS professional have changed in the five years since the show started.

We discussed these traits:

  1. Continuous learning
  2. Non-emergency care skills
  3. Careful consumer of online information
  4. Willing to let go of previous knowledge and skills
  5. Select right tool – right time – right patient
  6. Empathy and compassion
