What is an sf medic?

Hi,
can anyone tell me what an sf medic is,what they do and how you can go about becoming one?
I'm a civilian paramedic and looking at joining up,thanks.
 
They are Special Forces soldiers, with a medic qualification.

To be one, 3 simple (but not all easy) steps:

Join up, become a really, really tough and excellent soldier.

Apply for and pass special forces (as in SAS) selection.

Get selected to be trained as a medic.

Warning
99.9999% need not apply.

To find out abuit them, read any book about SAS selection, training and operations.
 
Or, you can join up as an RAMC medic
Do really well and pass Ex Black Serpent, and join Med Troop, or ask for a posting to MSU (Med Support Unit). They are the medics attached to the SAS

surprisingly, not just an army thing anymore. black serpant is tri service and will take on paramedics from the RAF. still, can't see many making the grade so to be fair still going to be army led. black serpant is not an easy way in though, just easier than selection.
 
Alternatively, you could join the RN (No £100k interviews promised though) as a Medic and go do your All Arms Commando Course and have an equally fulfilling career attached to 3 Cdo.
 
Excellent post jack

You also get to go to poole and do good stuff (and not be a cmt, which is alway a bonus)

Sky Monkey, try not to confuse 'new to this site' with 'red arrse'. They are not necessarily the same. :D

I think you're right and it's quite a funny answer but what I think BedpanwhataZero meant was banana breath. Still, he's not terribly bright so I forgive him.
