Kansas EMS Medical Directors


Medical Directors Mission

The EMS Medical Directors exists, primarily, to ensure that quality medical direction is available throughout Kansas. This direction is based on the optimal utilization of current medical practices which are consistent with the patient’s needs.  The delivery of emergency medical services care is supported through the adoption of medical standards; definition of scopes of practice; protocols, and quality assurance and improvement programs.  EMS Medical Directors are licensed physicians whose connection to the public, Emergency Medical Services services/agencies, Emergency Medical Services providers/instructors, related health care professionals, and other public service and political entities ensure appropriate care is provided.
