A set medic is either an EMT or paramedic who provides emergency medical assistance to individuals involved with TV or film productions. As a set medic, you work on set with actors and other production crew. Your responsibilities include waiting on standby for medical issues that arise during shooting. Other duties include advising the production team on safety issues regarding various parts of films, shows, or music videos. When working as a set medic, you travel to shooting locations, often for long periods. You may work around water, at heights, in studios, or any other place a production takes place.
