Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a challenging and rapidly emerging discipline at the intersection of traditional EMS, public health, public safety, and health care. The George Washington University offers several programs including a bachelor’s, master’s and dual degree in EMS, all of which are designed to prepare students for leadership positions in the field that will improve the quality of out-of-hospital care domestically and internationally.
