Christopher Hall Awarded Two-Year Scholarship
MedEvac Foundation International has awarded its 3rd annual
Medical Transport Leadership Institute Scholarship to Mr.
Christopher Hall, BS, FP-C, NREMT-P of PHI Air Medical Services.
The 2-year scholarship is awarded based on active involvement,
industry achievement level and commitment to critical care
transport services, and is made possible through a generous
donation from Metro Aviation, Inc.
(L-R) Dr. Kevin Hutton, Chris Hall
As a novice EMT Chris became interested
in the air medical field while working in a medical tent in a line
camp on a US Forest Service Complex fire in Idaho. Now having
worked for over 15 years in his chosen field, providing education
informally and formally, he happily found himself in the position
of Coordinator Clinical Education for PHI. By stretching beyond the
traditional role of educator into non-traditional role of business
development, industry relations, and government affairs, he has
been allowed to fulfill the desire to promote emergency and
critical care transport. Chris’ future goal is to work toward
a public information position to advocate for engaging the media to
ensure that the public hears of the good work done by the emergency
and critical care transport community, in addition to ensuring the
transparency that the public demands and deserves.
MedEvac Foundation Chairman, Dr. Kevin Hutton presents MTLI
Scholarship to Chris Hall.
Earlier this month, Chris completed the first year of MTLI
coursework. MTLI participants develop leadership and management
skills specific to medical transport through formal education
programs emphasizing both management theory and its direct
practical application. “I am very grateful for the
opportunity to attend MTLI. This was an exceptional and exciting
opportunity to network with Air Medical professionals from all
fields, and to learn from industry leaders who believe in
contributing to educational growth and professional success,”
The 2012 MTLI Scholarship will open October 2011 and will be
