Story Summary

Roughly one out of every three Missourians lives in a rural area, and that means hospitals and doctors’ offices are often hours away. Emergency medical services, or EMS, providers play a crucial role in taking care of these patients.

EMS providers come from all over the state to Columbia, Missouri, for this essential training. Every year, MU Health Care trains more than 70 people to become EMTs, paramedics or critical care paramedics.
