My name is Fredrik Schulz, and I have a background as a Registered Nurse (R.N.) with a specialist degree in anesthesia care. I am currently a full-time doctoral student at Umeå University, focusing on my research and studies. I graduated from the University of Gothenburg in 2013 with a Master of Science degree, and following my clinical experience in anesthesia and prehospital care in the Norrbotten region, I transitioned into my current role as a doctoral student.
As a doctoral student at Umeå University, my research focuses on mapping the needs and requirements of medical first responder personnel regarding training and preparation for mass casualty incidents. Specifically, how present scenario training is conducted so as to gain a better understanding for how future mass casualty incident scenario training can be improved upon. My thesis, tentatively titled "Mixed Reality - A Future Tool for Training and Preparing Ambulance Personnel for Mass Injury Events," is affiliated with the Horizon 2020 MED1stMR project. This international research initiative, funded by the EU, aims to develop a Mixed Reality-based learning and training platform of medical first responders.
