Located in: Portland, Oregon
Degree Required: Bachelors
|This position joins the Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA) statewide VISTA team. In addition to activities at your individual site, each member receives additional orientation, training throughout the year, team retreats and meetings, and the support of the team leaders and project director based at the state public health agency. For more information about the Oregon Health Authority VISTA Partnership Program, please visit: http://healthoregon.org/vista. The Oregon Health Authority Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Trauma Systems program develops and regulates systems for quality emergency medical care in Oregon. The program mission is to ensure EMS Providers are fully trained, that ambulances are properly equipped, and emergency medical systems are functioning efficiently and effectively. The EMS and Trauma Systems program greatly impacts people that live at or below the poverty line, as this population is more likely to utilize emergency medical services than non-economically disadvantaged populations. The EMS program assures the delivery of prehospital care through the coordination of first response agencies, ground, air, and marine ambulances, and related entities such as public safety communications centers. The Trauma program consists of specially-designated hospitals providing specialized trauma care, a network of state and regional advisory boards on trauma care, and a comprehensive monitoring and a quality assurance program which includes the Oregon Trauma Registry. These subprograms support the EMS and Trauma Systems mission and health equity for Oregonians: • Service, Vehicle and Provider Licensing • EMS for Children (EMSC). • Mobile Training Unit (MTU). With the innovative public health work happening in Oregon, Portland is a wonderful place to explore a future in public health.|
