Well, I can't seem to find out how you go about doing it...obviously you get your medical degree then what? It doesn't seem like these are advertised jobs! If anyone has info/knowledge how you go about getting involved in both European or US MMA events from this perspective it would be great to hear from you.:thumbsup:

Are you talking about being a cutman or one of the guys that comes into the cage to check cuts during fights and sometimes stop them?

Well, to be honest anything that requires a doctor in MMA would be cool by me such as doing medicals etc etc but I was thinking the guy who comes in to check the fighter if he has an injury mid-way through a fight or after a submission/KO...when they say its a doctor stoppage I've assumed it is an actual doctor who sees the fighter...what do you mean by a cutman?

-A cut man would be like the guy they call "Stitch" the old guy that works on the cuts in between rounds. This is him



-An event doctor would be the guy or girl that comes in when the fight is over or when there is a cut that needs to be checked midway through the round. The event doctors are usually annouced to be in attendance before the main even. Margaret Goodman is the doctor on some occasion and I think Tony Alamo is the other doctor. This is Margaret Goodman


Paramedics come in usually when Cro Cop is finished wth his opponent

Probably a BA or BS in Sports Medicine then medical school.
for doctor

For paramedic , you might scrap by on an EMT program. but if you had EMT cert and a BA or BS in sports medicine, you'd be good.

Cutman, no clue. Probably just practice and knowing trainers.

To become a doctor, your BA doesn't need to be in anything in anything specific. Most get a BA in biology, but because the entrance to medical school doesn't cover anything medical you can get any degree you'd like. Chemistry, physics of biology help the most though.

I'm just saying that is you're going into SPORTS MEDICINE, such a degree might just help you. :thumb02:

Ok, this all sounds cool...my problem right now is knowing what to do after you get your degree, do you just wait for a job opening and apply? No idea to be honest and any info on how it works in Europe as well as the US would be helpful.

You just have to wait for job openings, or go to them ask about a job. Good thing about a medical degree is you have a lot of options on what you can do.

Yeah, I'm halfway through my degree and starting to think about what I want to specialise in...and well I thought this might be an interesting little idea to get some knowledge on...considering I like the sport so much it doesn't sound like a bad idea so far :thumbsup:
