The MedEvac Foundation International has announced that TraumaOne Flight Services Program Manager Chad E. McIntyre, and Hospital Wing Director of Safety Erik Bratton, have been selected as the recipients of the 2018 Medical Transport Leadership Institute (MTLI) Scholarship.
The annual scholarships are awarded to individuals who excel in the air medical and critical care transport industry and strive toward the betterment of the industry. Through formal education programmes that emphasise the direct practical application of management theory, MTLI aims to enhance leadership and management of medical transportation.
“The credibility bestowed on the MTLI program demonstrates a commitment by participants to embark on a path of professional development for not just an individual programme but the entire industry,” said McIntyre. “MTLI will not only benefit my programme, but will provide me the knowledge and skills to promote a better air medical industry for future flight nurses, paramedics, pilots, mechanics, administrators, and most of all patients.”
“MTLI will help refine those skills that are critical to being a leader, thus aiding our organisation in developing and fostering a great safety culture, adding real value to our organization,” said Bratton, recipient of the second scholarship. “I hope to bring back the lessons learned at MTLI and share those with other employees, which will aid in our pursuit of excellence as our programme continues to grow.”
