Quinnipiac University EMS is a student-run volunteer supplemental first responder agency. They formally began operations in the fall of 2019, providing EMS coverage for the Mount Carmel and York Hill campuses. In addition to responding to medical emergencies, QU EMS members volunteer their time providing CPR and Stop The Bleed classes for the Quinnipiac community.

Aside from being an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience in healthcare, QU EMS is also a great opportunity for students to gain both leadership and teaching experience.
