Who we are and what we do
The New England EMS Institute is part of the Elliot Health System, which has over a 116-year history of serving the community and has been instrumental in training hospital and pre-hospital patient care providers. The union of patient care and education creates the ideal environment for pre-hospital medical education. Elliot Health System and the New England EMS Institute have provided EMS educational programs since 1985. During the past 30 years we have educated over 10,000 students. Graduates of our programs have become practitioners and managers with EMS services throughout the country. In 1998 the New England EMS Institute was created at Elliot Health System. This has allowed us to function as a post-secondary educational facility and expand our educational programs.
