Medical Specialist

I served as a medical specialist in two separate units. From 2000 to 2004 I was the senior medic in an airborne artillery battery consisting of 110 soldiers. When I arrived to this assignment, I was responsible for integrating a medical section into the unit. Because the unit did not have a medical section before, I was responsible for ordering medical equipment, writing standard operating procedures, and coordinating training to help unit leaders with the management of a medical section. Other tasks that I was responsible for were: maintaining medical equipment and supplies; coordinating medical support for the unit; maintaining unit health records; performing preventative medicine tasks (water treatment, field hygiene, insect and rodent control); providing unit personnel with immunizations; providing emergency medical treatment at or above the level of a civilian paramedic; coordinating and executing medical evacuations using ground transportation and helicopters under a variety of conditions. During my time at this unit, I was deployed to Iraq for 9 months. Some of my additional duties during this deployment included: coordinating with local Iraqi doctors and healthcare personnel to re-establish hospitals and medical clinics, assisting in reconstruction efforts, training and supporting Iraqi police officers, and providing humanitarian aid to the civilian populace.

From 2004 to 2006 I was assigned to a ground ambulance unit. My responsibilities in this unit were as a senior medic on an ambulance. I was responsible for the maintenance and operation of the ambulance and all the medical equipment onboard, and providing emergency medical treatment at or above the level of a civilian paramedic. During my assignment to this unit I deployed to Kuwait for 7 months where I served as part of a team providing ambulance services to remote military camps and limited support for civilian communities.
