Arthur Pliaconis is a Paramedic with Denver Health Paramedic Division and has been in EMS full-time since age 18.

He moved to Boston to pursue his BS in Human Physiology from Boston University, and began working as a full-time EMT in 2007 while attending university. After graduating from BU, Arthur completed paramedic school and promoted to Paramedic in 2012. Later in 2014, he made a spontaneous move to the prestigious Denver Health Paramedic Division to advance his Paramedic career, and has recently obtained his critical-care Flight Paramedic certification.

His favorite chief complaint starts with “Well, you see, there’s this rash…”
