Out-of-Hospital Care (EMS)

The Department of Emergency Medicine Division of Out-of-Hospital Care (EMS) serves the community when health care must be taken to the patient. This involves caring for a time-sensitive injury or illness and transporting the patient to a medical facility as quickly as possible.

An emerging subspecialty of this emergency medicine division, disaster medicine addresses the medical response needed for the unique injury and disease patterns associated with natural disasters, epidemics and man-made events, including terrorist attacks and wars.

Community Partnerships

Emergency medicine faculty physicians serve as leaders in the medical community and work with Indiana University Health LifeLineIndianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS), Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD), and surrounding areas.

Fellowship Training

The Division of Out-of-Hospital Care offers a one-year EMS fellowship that welcomes up to three fellows each year. The Disaster Medicine fellowship focuses on preparedness and response to natural and man-made disasters.
