LifeMed Alaska’s Observer Program is open to hospital personnel, EMS providers, physicians and mid-level providers interested in learning more about air medicine and rapid transportation of critically ill or injured persons. Participants will shadow LifeMed teams throught their day, both transporting patients by helicopter and airplane from all corners of the state and performing routine daily tasks during downtime.


Observers must be at least 18 years old, weigh 200 pounds or less, and be in good physical health. Observers are scheduled as space and program requirements allow.


Please complete and submit this application. A member of our staff will contact you within two weeks to schedule your ride-along and provide additional information.
