University Emergency Medical Response
“Comets Caring for Comets”

Mission Statement

University Emergency Medical Response strives to create a safer environment for the UT Dallas community by providing faster and more direct emergency medical care for everyone on campus.

What is University Emergency Medical Response?

University Emergency Medical Response is an initiative focused on providing quality, campus-centered emergency medical care to the UT Dallas campus. It is a First-Responder Organization with professionally trained students, faculty, and staff volunteers, and will be on-scene to treat emergent medical cases. In truly emergent cases, seconds save lives, and UEMR will help shorten response time and improve the accessibility of care for members of the UT Dallas community.

Who Are the Volunteers?

Professionally-trained undergraduates are the core of UEMR; however, faculty and staff are invited to join as well. All volunteers are Nationally Registered EMTs to ensure standard of care is upheld.

Eligibility Requirements include:

  • Texas EMT-Basic License
  • Must be a UT Dallas student/staff/faculty
  • Completed UEMR application
  • Applications are due the first day of classes for each semester.
