Abstract

Physician involvement in the provision of both direct and indirect medical control to emergency medical providers is critical to the effective operation of an emergency medical services (EMS) system. We conducted a survey of all accredited emergency medicine residency programs in the United States to determine the content of EMS instruction provided to these physicians-in-training. The majority of programs provide an introduction to direct medical control, to EMS organizational structure, and the opportunity to participate in EMS-related research. Less than 65%, however, provide formal instruction in EMS risk management or quality assurance or the opportunity to observe policy-making bodies related to EMS. The importance placed on EMS during residency training is variable. EMS is the domain of emergency medicine, and adequate training of residents for these responsibilities is imperative.
