The Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) is dedicated to protecting the campus by providing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to students, staff, faculty and visitors at events on campus.
UIC EMS provides medical support and services to anyone experiencing a medical emergency at an event on campus. All of the EMS providers are licensed Paramedics or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), in addition to being full-time UIC students enrolled in pre-health tracks of study.
UIC EMS also provides an EMT training course. The EMT training course trains 200 students per year to become an EMT, by teaching how to administer medications, stabilize critical patients and perform patient assessments.
