EMS Corps is providing Brotherhood


The four San Mateo County residents selected for the Emergency Medical Services Corps started their 5-month training last month as part of the Health System’s effort to diversify and build a more inclusive workforce. We went to visit three of the San Mateo County students on the training site in Alameda to hear their experience so far as part of the 25-trainees EMS Corps cohort. Emmanuel, Filisione, and Julian had just finished a lecture on patient assessment when we sat down. They are enjoying the curriculum and cohort model. ”No one gets left behind here,” noted one trainee, “this is a brotherhood.”
