Med-Act provides continuing education for field providers that meets the requirements set forth by the Kansas Board of EMS and the National Registry of EMT’s. A Physician lecture series is offered twice a year with Physicians from local institutions offering information in a variety of specialty areas related to EMS. The field provider lecture series gives field providers an opportunity to present on a topic of their choosing and is done yearly. Department Educators present lectures twice a year over the course of 3 days each to accommodate attendance by shift employees. Med-Act also supports local hospitals with continuing education programs by providing EMS continuing education hours. Med-Act is able to offer CECBEMS continuing education credit for courses. The ability to offer this type of continuing education, which is nationally recognized, is only held by a handful of ambulance and air ambulance services across the Country.
