The medical field is full of stressful careers that require a special sort of personality, but none of them are more demanding than that of an EMT or a combat medic. Do you think you have what it takes to do either one? Once you go through our rigorous questions, we'll figure out if you are meant for the battlefield or the back of the ambulance!
Both EMTs and combat medics are required to think on their feet and remain calm in the face of crisis. In addition to employing highly trained medical skills, both positions require a tough stomach and the desire to help others. After we examine your unique set of traits, the way you respond to emergencies and the way you keep yourself balanced, we'll know which of the two fields you are best cut out to work.
When you see our questions, pretend like you have to make the same sort of snap decisions that EMTs or combat medics have to make. Both the way you respond and the answers you provide will reveal which occupation would be best for you to pursue. Will you be riding along with the sirens and lights or will you have your gear on your back? If you're ready to find out, we're ready to tell you!
