Paramedic/JD idea
« on: November 16, 2009, 02:41:48 PM »
I know that some people do joint JD/MBA programs so this might not too far of a stretch but even though they'd not share any credits I am thinking of takeing a paramedic course in the afternoons after my 1L classes. That way I can work my last 2 years in I need to as a paramedic, plus it would look good on a resume if I wanted to represent medical cases(ambulance driver turned "ambulance chaser" )     

Has anyone else tried something like this, how did it go for you? I know some people have a full MD/JD and this would in theory just be a stepdown from that same type of thought.

whats wrong with actually doing the work first hand before attempting to claim to understand what it is in court?

This is probably the worst idea I've ever heard. It's some sort of striverism in the wrong direction.

While I appreciate the feedback can you tell me why? There are lawyers who are also medical doctors do you think that is bad too?

Consider what it takes to be a medical doctor compared to what it takes to be a paramedic. Therein lies your answer.

Thats kind of my point too. It takes a lot longer to be a MD than a paramedic, I don't want or need the whole MD just a general idea(that plus a lot of medical mistakes happen in route to the hospital too)

I get it, you guys think paramedics and EMT's are a joke. Just don't say that outloud when you need one someday is all.  :-\ I guess that makes cops an equally big joke for those who who want to become  prosocution, afterall that dosn't require a PHD either.  :-[

No one thinks paramedics/EMTs are jokes, but your idea is a colossal waste of time and completely pointless. You will get nothing out of being EMT-certified and a JD. Furthermore, you want to add classes on top of taking 1L courses? You must be certifiably insane.
