Since it’s inception almost 50 years ago, McGregor Memorial EMS (formerly Durham Ambulance Corps) has served the communities of Durham, Lee, Madbury and UNH. Over the years, thousands of volunteers from all walks of life have served patients with the utmost of skill, compassion, altruism and dedication.
As a healthcare provider, McGregor is inextricably intertwined with both Durham and UNH and that has fostered an academic connection through both UNH’s and McGregor’s offerings of EMT training. UNH students – many of them bound for careers as physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and dentists – join McGregor to gain incredibly valuable experience in patient care, record writing, communications and leadership. They are remarkable students with excellent GPA’s and idle time at the station typically finds them studying, working on EMS skills or preparing for the rigorous MCAT and other entrance exams.
