The Division of Out of Hospital Medicine provides Emergency Medicine residents with opportunities to experience all facets of out-of-hospital emergency medical care
This will be accomplished through:
- Medical Directorship
- Tactical EMS
- Mass Gathering Medicine
- Motor Sports Medicine
- The Federal Emergency Medical Services for Children Program
- Disaster Response.
The Division provides Tactical EMS support to the SWAT Teams of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Indiana State Police, and the Indianapolis office of the FBI. It is fully integrated into Mass Gathering events and provides spectator emergency medical coverage for all events at the new Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indianapolis Convention Center, ranging from Colts games to rock concerts and motorcross races, all events held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (including the Indianapolis 500, the NASCAR Brickyard 400, and the new Moto-GP race), and the largest ½ marathon in the country with over 35,000 runners. There are opportunities for those interested in Motor Sports Medicine through the events held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, including a special Motor Sports Elective every May.
Residents participate in the formal didactic and clinical teaching of prehospital providers and provide in-service lectures to the many prehospital agencies that we sponsor.
