Karen Mulvaney, MBA, RN, NRP, and Greg Taylor, NRP, FP-C were recently awarded the designation of Certified Medical Transport Executive (CMTE), by the Association of Air Medical Services (AAMS) from the Medical Transport Leadership Institute (MTLI). Mulvaney and Taylor are Clinical Base Managers with Erlanger Health System’s LIFE FORCE Air Medical Service.
The CMTE designation is an indication of Mulvaney’s and Taylor’s demonstrated skill in leadership and expertise in medical transport management. There were only 78 graduates of the 2019 MTLI program. In order to be eligible for this certification, Mulvaney and Taylor participated in a rigorous educational program over the course of two years, passed a comprehensive written examination, and completed a team project related to a timely industry challenge.
“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication showed by these two individuals,” said Robbie Tester, NRP, FP-C, CMTE, Vice President of Operations at Erlanger Health System. “They both have put in a lot of hours toward this achievement. This is just another example of what makes LIFE FORCE a World Class organization.”
Mulvaney and Taylor's certification is valid for three years. During the three years, they must earn 30 Management Education Units (MEUs) in order to keep this certification current and to become recertified. Mulvaney is the Clinical Base Manager at LIFE FORCE 1 located in Cleveland, Tenn. and Taylor is the Clinical Base Manager for LIFE FORCE 6 located in Andrews, N.C.
