Residents spend two weeks during PGY1 riding along with ambulance crews. The rotation puts residents on-scene and gives them the opportunity for hands-on pre-hospital experience.
Residents have the opportunity for an aeromedical experience during PGY2 and/or PGY3. Aeromedical is not required by residents, but is available as an elective for those with interest. More information on Life Star of Kansas can be found at: https://kslifestar.com/Home_Page.php
