We exist to advance best practice models of EMS teaching and learning in Illinois.
To this end, we collaborate to develop and accomplish achievable metrics to implement the education portion of the Illinois EMS Strategic Plan;
stay engaged in national committees, organizations and initiatives relative to EMS education;
and create resources for educators to help them assess, design, develop, implement and evaluate effective educational programs.
A. Foster a professional EMS learning community that meets or exceeds minimum ethical, academic and practice standards.
B. Create programs that promote scholarly concern for improvement and develop conceptual, technical, contextual, integrative, and adaptive competencies.
C. Inspire students and educators to value practice excellence and life-long learning.
Composition and members
The Education Committee had its origin in 1998. Membership was originally limited to EMS System Coordinators/Administrative Directors from Resource Hospitals. Upon reflection, that composition excluded valuable input from the diverse body of EMS educators throughout the state. Meetings are now open to all interested stakeholders from the EMS education community as we seek participation and cross representation from all course levels and EMS regions in Illinois
