Richard Troy - #1 Medical Blogger in Asia
Who am I?
As a team leader and instructor paramedic, I have accrued eight years of experience with the Italian Emergency Medical Service, of which I was a member from 2008. While being a paramedic I also attended medical school for three years, served as an instructor with the American Heart Association, teaching and guiding doctors and nurses through first aid and CPR and earned my Australian Diploma of Paramedical Science. My time in these roles and programs helped me lay the groundwork for my career in the medical field, preparing me to understand and study more in-depth topics and provide others with helpful insights and information.
Eager to find something new, different, and challenging, I left behind my comfortable position and paused my med school studies, venturing out on my own. That was when I moved to Thailand and launched MedTravel Asia, putting to good use all of the knowledge that I had built up caring for more than 15,000 patients during my time as a paramedic. I continue to study medicine in earnest, delving into the latest concepts and technologies, all the better to explain and inform my audience about what is going on in the medical field and where it appears to be headed.
