OhioHealth Grant Medical Center/Franklin County Firefighters EMS Education program marks 30 years.
This month, the OhioHealth Grant Medical Center/Franklin County Firefighters EMS Education program marks 30 years of training central Ohio emergency medical technicians and paramedics in one of Ohio’s few hospital-based programs. The program was founded in December 1983 and has grown to become one of the largest and most respected training programs in the country. Having graduated more than 1,800 paramedics and hundreds of EMT’s, many of its graduates are serving area fire departments, government-based EMS programs and private ambulance services and hospitals. The students can complete EMT training in four and a half months and paramedic training in 12 to 14 months.

Grant Level I Trauma Care Conference 2012
November 13 & 14, 2012
The Conference Center at NorthPointe
9243 Columbus Pike Lewis Center, OH 43035
This past year our program has been one of growth. Professionally we have strengthened our program with physicians, staff and programs and are pleased to share what we have learned over the past year. Clinically we are delivering world class care for an ever increasing number of patients. We have expanded our services to include acute care surgery and increased our excellent Trauma Nurse Practioner program.
This year’s conference will explore traditional practices versus current evidence based practices that are beneficial to the trauma patient. You will interact with the presenters as they challenge your knowledge using the Audience Response System throughout the two days.
We are excited to present Dr. Kenji Inaba, MS, MD, FRCSC, FACS, from Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center, University of Southern California speaking about non-invasive surgical intervention on complex liver injuries and management of penetrating thoracic injuries. It is our hope that you will find the conference intellectually challenging and professionally rewarding.
