National Association of EMS Physicians

Foundations of Medical Oversight (FOMO)

The National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP®) Foundations of Medical Oversight (FOMO) course provides practicing and future medical directors with knowledge essential to the provision of quality medical oversight. 

Built on the principle that the ultimate goal of medical oversight is to improve community health, the course covers the system issues and clinical care considerations that impact this role. 

Topics covered include system design and response, credentialing and training of EMS providers, clinical care and quality improvement.  In addition, there is a state-specific section on legislation and regulation as it impacts EMS. 

The course is offered in an interactive format that can be provided as one full day or two half days, in-person or via a live online platform. Instruction is provided by a team of EMS physicians from NAEMSP® but can transition to being presented by trained local EMS physician leaders in a train-the-trainer approach and welcomes the assistance of state and/or local EMS offices in conveying the pertinent state and local EMS regulations.  The course is approved for 6.5 AMA Category 1 credits.

In 2021, NAEMSP provided a meeting to discuss the course. The session provided an overview of course design and outlined NAEMSP’s plan for course dissemination. The logistics of course administration were covered as well. We encourage state chapter leadership and others interested in administering the course to watch this recording.
Please continue to watch this webpage for more information as it becomes available.
This course is supported by the GMR Foundation for Research and Education.
