Welcome to the Rice EMS Website!

Rice University Emergency Medical Services (REMS) strives to provide the Rice Community with quality emergency medical care. REMS seeks to accomplish this goal through rapid response to calls for emergency service, standby coverage at special events, education of the Rice community, and a commitment to compassionate patient care, quality improvement, and professionalism.

This site is designed to provide information about Rice EMS, the services we provide, and the people who provide those services. If you cannot find the information you are looking for on this website, or have a question that is not answered here, feel free to contact us and we will get back to you promptly.

In 2019, REMS was recognized as the National EMS organization of the year, and received the First Responder Award in Texas.

Thank you and congratulations to all the staff, students, alumni, medical directors, and contributors who have worked to make this possible!

As the Spring 2020 semester draws to a close, please consider making a donation to support the REMS endowment.  This fund will provide funding for an exemplary REMS graduate who is going on to pursue post-baccalaureate education, and hopefully scholarship funding for undergraduate students in the future. Click here for more information about the endowment, and how to make a gift.
