“The physician's highest calling, his only calling, is to make sick people healthy - to heal, as it is termed.” - Samuel Hahnemann For many years, since the time of the Triumviri Nocturne and the Vigils, many lives have been saved by some form of an emergency medical service, and since then it has evolved into what it is now a complex life-saving system that has saved many more lives. From the origin of medical responders to the creation of paramedics, people have risked their lives for others, and in between is what is known as an Emergency Medical Technician or EMT. What is an EMT? Emergency Medical Technicians are healthcare providers of the emergency medical services system and are trained clinicians who respond to emergency situations regarding medical issues and traumatic injuries.

Conclusion In brevity, becoming an EMT may take a great deal of time and effort, but in the end, it is a very good career choice and may open up better opportunities in the future, and although it may be very stressful, many lives will be saved because of it. In conclusion, there is probably no better profession than that of an Emergency Medical Technician.
