Alan Craig joined the staff of American Medical Response in 2012 to serve as AMR’s national lead for its Mobile Integrated Healthcare practices, and assists in integrating AMR Medicine into all aspects of AMR’s conduct of business, as well as promoting leading-edge evidence-based care supported by data and contemporary science.
Craig came to AMR after nearly 35 years or service in emergency services at the City of Toronto, including the last 13 years as Deputy Chief of Toronto Emergency Medical Services. As an ALS paramedic for more than 25 years, he holds a deep appreciation of the needs of patients, particularly society’s most vulnerable.
Craig is widely known for his involvement in EMS system design projects in both the US and Canada, as a teacher and conference speaker, and for his engagement in resuscitation scientific research including serving as an Investigator in the National Institutes of Health’ 10-site Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium studying new interventions in cardiac arrest and near-death trauma. Craig has published extensively in peer-reviewed scientific publications on resuscitation, EMS system design, and predictive modeling in out-of-hospital medical care.
Craig holds a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning, as well as a BA and a certificate in Public Administration, all from the University of Toronto, and was a Collaborating Investigator at the Li Ka Shing Institute. He is currently based in San Diego.
