Emergency medical technicians (EMT) and ambulance technicians are terms used in some countries to denote a health care provider of emergency medical services. EMTs are clinicians, trained to respond quickly to emergency situations regarding medical issues, traumatic injuries, and accident scenes. Not all ambulance personnel are EMTs however, and the term is sometimes used informally to refer to ambulance personnel in general. In English-speaking countries, there is an official distinction between EMTs and paramedics, in which paramedics have additional educational requirements, qualifications, and scope of practice. EMTs are most commonly found working in ambulances, but should not be confused with "ambulance drivers" or "ambulance attendants" – ambulance staff who in the past were not trained in medical care. EMTs are employed by private ambulance services, governments, hospitals, and fire departments. EMTs provide medical care under a set of protocols, which are typically written by a physician. Some EMTs are paid employees, while others (particularly those in rural areas) are volunteers.
A paramedic is a specialist healthcare professional who responds to emergency calls for medical help outside of a hospital. Paramedics mainly work as part of the emergency medical services (EMS), most often in ambulances. The scope of practice of a paramedic varies among countries, but generally includes autonomous decision making around the emergency care of patients.
Not all ambulance personnel are paramedics, although the term is sometimes used informally to refer to any ambulance personnel. In English-speaking countries, there is an official distinction between paramedics and emergency medical technicians (or emergency care assistants), in which paramedics have additional qualifications and are accountable to a professional regulatory body.
