EKU Paramedic Graduate’s Next Stop is Medical School!

EKU Paramedic Graduate’s Next Stop is Medical School!

Caleb Morris, originally from Berea Kentucky has been accepted by Lincoln Memorial University’s DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM). Caleb’s interest in medicine began with his grandmother, a Frontier Nurse that emigrated from Canada to serve rural Appalachia. His grandmother later returned with her family to take up roots permanently and finished her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner working with the White House Clinic in McKee, Kentucky.

Inspired to explore medicine, Caleb came to EKU’s paramedic program. Following graduation in 2015, he has continued to practice as a Nationally Registered Paramedic in Madison, Scott, and Powell counties. As a paramedic, he continues to precept and mentor paramedic students today. During his time in the field, Caleb has gained invaluable interpersonal and clinical experience. He anticipates these experiences examining, diagnosing, and treating patients will permit him to excel in the clinical years of medical school while his science background at EKU has prepared him for the two initial basic science years. Following medical school Caleb intends to complete his residency in Emergency Medicine or Anesthesiology and practice in emergency or intensive care medicine. Caleb hopes to become involved in medical direction and paramedic education in his home state of Kentucky.

The faculty of the EKU Department of Paramedicine are very proud of Caleb and his future. Leaders, such as Caleb, are already changing the face of emergency medical services, not only in Kentucky, but around the world. The EKU Emergency Medical Care Program is the first accredited Paramedic program in Kentucky. We offer well established Associate of Science & Bachelor of Science degrees in Emergency Medical Care.
