About the Mobile Stroke Unit:

Are you seeking to join a community of Paramedics that are dedicated to providing the best level of care possible? Then the Paramedic role on the IU Health Mobile Stroke Unit may be for you! Through decades of care, Indiana has been able to launch the state's first mobile stroke treatment unit.

The Mobile Stroke Unit is responsible for providing life or death service to patients, therefore team members need to feel comfortable, and confident, working independently.

These teams will be racing to the scene of patients who are having a stroke, provide a CT scan, and if needed, give lifesaving, clot-busting medicine on the spot. These team members will have the opportunity to work on a neuro ICU on wheels with some of the industry's leading equipment and technology.

• Emergency Vehicle Operator Course (EVOC) or its equivalency must be obtained within initial probationary period.
• NIMS 100, 200, 700, 800 to be obtained with initial probationary period.
• Minimum of 1 year ALS Paramedic experience preferred.
• Ability to make independent, clinical and operational competent decisions in a challenging environment.
• In addition to these requirements, the Community Paramedic for Heart & Lung Ctr also has these requirements: Requires successful completion of IUH BMH Community Paramedic/Integrated HealthCare Core Curriculum within 6 months of hire, minimum of 4 years of paramedic experience preferred.
