Medical Directors

Rice EMS is supported by a team of dedicated medical directors who bring their mentorship, expertise and enthusiasm to this collegiate EMS service. Our Medical Directors are emergency physicians committed to excellence in emergency medicine and EMS. Some of them are alumni of Rice University and Rice EMS.

Dr. Decker (Martel ’07) is REMS’s Medical Director.  Associate medical directors are Dr. Mark Escott (Jones ’96), Dr. Angela Fisher,  Dr. Shane Jenks, Dr. Katarznya (Kasia) Kimmel (Baker ’07), and Dr. Tyson Pillow (Will Rice ’02). This team of extraordinary medical leaders keeps Rice EMS running smoothly by overseeing patient care, teaching clinical skills and setting a tone for excellence in the delivery of pre-hospital care for the Rice University community. They are available around the clock to provide emergency medical direction for the on duty campus crew. Our Medical Directors review Rice EMS medical cases and charts to ensure the best patient care is provided. They also teach continuing education classes to keep Rice EMTs updated on the latest research.
