Welcome to UIC EMS! Founded in 2011, University of Illinois at Chicago EMS is the first student-run ambulance service in the Midwest. Our staff provides emergency treatment and transportation to the students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University of Illinois. Our
staff is comprised of students at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, and professional. We are fortunate to have the support from many different units and departments to accomplish our mission:
“Our close relationship with UIC Environmental Health & Safety, UIC Police, and the UI Hospital is quite unusual among collegiate EMS services.” -Oliver Boryszewski, NREMT
…and offer our staff very unique opportunities:
“You can’t get this anywhere else on campus. You’re giving actual care, and are the first to do so. It not only gives you a skill set, but confidence, whether you want to be a doctor, a nurse, or a paramedic.”
We also host training for prospective EMS personnel and the public alike, including Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training as well as CPR and First Aid courses.
