    I've been an EMT since I was 16, and I really don't feel qualified to do what I do. I work for a volunteer service over breaks from college, and so I don't get a lot of experience. Yet, since I work in a small town I'm often the sole provider of care. Will medical school make me a better EMT? Will I gain experience setting up IVs like I do for medics, reading and taking EKGs, backboarding, etc?
