MSTS is a medical training company founded in 2009. In early 2009 the founding members were discussing medical education and they realized that it could and should be done better. The focus for so many years was just the certification. Both the founders and the faculty shifted that priority to make the patient the focus. A quality education is the primary objective. The founding members currently hold or have held credentials in New York and Florida. The group brings together over 100 years of clinical experience in EMS and emergency medicine, as well as managerial and academic roles at various levels. Our staff teaches at medical and nursing schools, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We are professional educators and are committed to "Raising the Bar in Medical Education". Our learners and the patients they encounter deserve it.
MSTS specializes in the teaching of advanced cardiac and pediatric life support classes, CPR and First Aid classes for both the professional rescuer and the general public as well as many other health and wellness programs. Our professional services include consulting, and expert witness testimony. Experts in the field of medical simulation, MSTS can enhance your agency's program in many ways.
