Medic Up! Episode 2: Rita F. – 2014 Paramedic Graduate & Me

Episode 2

I have finally gotten around to getting the podcast going. It’s still a little rough around the edges but I am learning.

Episode 2 starts a series of interviews with 5 “recent” paramedic school graduates. I think that most students have similar experiences during school that bring them together as a class/cohort. The real learning begins after they graduate and begin to work in the career field. I lovingly refer to the first year of paramedic practice as: “The Survival Year.” After The Survival Year, the paramedic starts to develop into their own clinician; figuring out what works, what doesn’t and how they like to do things.

In this episode we’ll here from Rita F. who has a fantastic story of oppurtunity, overcoming adversity and the realization of her dream.

**These episodes are largely unedited and the guests were not given the questions in advance as to illicit more spontaneous visceral responses.

I think most medic students and practicing paramedics can relate to most

everything my guests talk about.

I hope you dig  it.
