Holly Williams, M.D. is the Medical Director for both EMT Utah and the EMT Utah Volunteer Corps. She is an emergency medicine physician and flight physician. She has a passion for pre-hospital medicine. She first received her EMT license in 1994 and maintained it through medical school. She has also trained as a Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT. She has worked as a ski patroller both in Utah and Michigan. She also served as a Navy Corpsman for Marines in the US Navy Reserve. This is where she met her husband who was also a Corpsman for Marines and is currently a paramedic and just graduated from nursing school.
Holly graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine and did her residency training at Michigan State University – Kalamazoo. She is currently employed by St. Marks’s Hospital. She is very happy to be back to Utah where she and her husband enjoy skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and are learning to kite surf.
Holly’s contributions to the program at EMT Utah include oversight and evaluation of the current curriculum, participation in AEMT testing protocols, hiring and training of staff and instructors. She has a vision for the EMT Utah Volunteer Corps as she hopes to expand the services we offer in the EMT Utah Volunteer Corps program to include more intense in-country training in countries all over the world. Much of this training is vital and needed to help prevent the spread of disease, to respond appropriately to disasters or injury, etc.
Holly intends to attend one of the Global Medic Assist programs soon, with CHOICE where she will be able to evaluate additional needs we can meet for in-country residents. We are excited and proud to work with such a passionate, committed and engaged Medical Director.
