Student Spotlights

Ann: Emergency Medical Services

Ann spent her time working and training with BYU's very own Emergency Medical Training team. Through this experience, she has found her future career!

How would you summarize your experience?

BYU Emergency Medical Services is my family at BYU, together we serve the campus community, increase our skills as medical providers and interact with the world in a way that is different from simply being a student. It will build character traits that no class can teach. It is the single most important thing I have done with my college career. It has helped my make connections, increase my knowledge, prepare for my career and enjoy my time here at BYU.

How did you find your internship?

I found this experience through a connection on BYU EMS. I have been able to start the process of becoming a firefighter and becoming hired on a fire department. I was not expecting to change my plans and become a firefighter.

How did COVID-19 affect your experience?

Thankfully we were able to continue with BYU EMS as a whole although many of our normal events were changed and we were not able to do as much this semester.

Jared Leblow, Kristoper Gruber, Kyler Mikami, Spencer Christianson, Ann Dearden and Tate Colton. One of our last shifts during Winter semester 2020 when the school was shut down. We got together and had a morning shift breakfast with French toast and scrambled eggs. While this picture does not show us actively training, it does show how we all enjoy being there (half the people in the picture were not currently on shift).
