About Regions EMS Physician

Regions EMS is an academic department providing medical direction to over 1500 prehospital provders. We host an EMS fellowship and are affiliated with Regions Hospital EM residency. I am a practicing Emergency Physician and the Assistant Medicl Director for Regions Hospital EMS in St. Paul, Minnesota. My career in medicine started with my certified first responder-defibrillation (CFR-D) certification by NYS at age 16. I earned my EMT at 18 while I was employed by the Vestal Volunteer Emergency Squad as a BLS crew chief. During undergrad I transferred my certification to Massachusetts and was employed by several private EMS agencies over the next 4 years. For medical school I returned to NY and completed my MD degree at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. Residency training in Emergency Medicine brought me to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where I had the privilege to serve as chief resident in 2009. From 2010-2011 I completed a prehospital medicine/EMS fellowship under the medical direction of Dr. RJ Frascone. Aaron Burnett, M.D. Assistant Medical Director Regions Hospital EMS
