The University of Illinois at Chicago Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is UIC's very own campus-wide EMS response service; transporting and treating patients experiencing medical emergencies. UIC’s EMS treats and transports hundreds of UIC staff, faculty, students, and visitors every year. The EMS provides a full “911” Basic Life Support response dispatched through the UIC Police Department. All of the EMS providers are licensed Paramedics or Emergency Medical Technicians as well as full time UIC students enrolled in pre-health (pre-medicine, pre-nursing, and pre-physician assistant).
The EMS also offers a multitude of training opportunities such as CPR training, First Aid training, and an in-house Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training course. The EMT training course trains 200 students a year to become EMTs. UIC’s EMS is part of the UIC Environmental Health and Safety Office and adopts their mission of making the University a safer place for students, staff, and visitors.
