Medical Director Waiver Process


A physician applying to become a medical director may request a waiver for up to twelve (12) months from the date the physician is approved by the board to acquire necessary certifications.

In order to obtain a waiver, the medical director or agency director must submit a letter to the Board of EMS with the specific items for which they would like to request a waiver.

Once submitting a waiver request to the Board, you will receive notification that the waiver request was approved.

A physician operating under a one (1) year waiver may request an additional one (1) year extension at which time the KBEMS office shall assign a staff member to work with the EMS medical director to locate any training needed to obtain missing credentials or to work with the provider to find an alternate EMS medical director who meets the requirements of this administrative regulation.

Please contact KBEMS with any questions at or at 859-256-3565.
