We’re very excited to be introducing the newest member of our team. Our very first medical director, Dr. Todd Heffern. Dr. Heffern started his career with a background in EMS as a flight physician on a helicopter service in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His career path has brought him to Knoxville, Tennessee where he now works as an Emergency Department physician at UT Medical Center, and serves as acting medical director for several EMS agencies in the surrounding area.
We are very proud to have him now serving as our medical director as well. His background and passion for EMS education makes him a perfect fit with our organization. He will be overseeing our new accreditation program which will be targeted towards EMS professionals, and working closely with our Program Coordinator, Matt Plummer.
