Ah - I was just going to ask if a "medic" was the same as an EMT. In the US an EMT can be in an ambulance, but cannot administer any medications. A paramedic is more similar to an emergency doc (not as high a level or education) - works on an ambulance and can administer medications.

So is a חובש more like an EMT or Paramedic?
