EMS Clinical Specialist - Field (Direct Hire Paramedic Only) (July 2025 Academy)

Austin, TX

The City of Austin’s Emergency Medical Services Department provides the 9-1-1 emergency medical response throughout Austin and Travis County, Texas, serving a population of over 2.2 million people. One of the many qualities that makes our organization unique is that we work independently as a third service public safety provider—this means our main focus is on emergency medicine, and our Medics are trusted as clinicians capable of providing excellent patient care in the field. We are looking for experienced Paramedics to join our elite team of providers and help us change the lives of the people we serve. With top notch equipment, over 20 specialized units, and opportunities to promote through the ranks of our organization, there is a fulfilling career waiting for you at ATCEMS!


Successful candidates in this process will be directly hired into the Clinical Specialist – Field (lead Paramedic) rank, which is the second rank in our hiring structure. New hires at this rank will be paid at the base rate for Clinical Specialist – Field (currently $30.03/hour) while completing the required new hire training and credentialing process. If a Paramedic candidate has verified experience of 2 or more years of full-time work experience in a 911 EMS system, they will be eligible to be paid at the 2 year pay step $31.23 an hour based on a 42-hour work week. Upon completion of this training, each employee will be credentialed to the PL-5 level and cleared to independent duty for the field.

We value the clinical knowledge our providers bring to the organization and fully support expanding that knowledge, whether it is through additional practice out in the field or through a variety of Continuing Education courses offered by the department. Come see why we're one of the most progressive EMS systems in the nation!
