    I have heard that some ER's hire paramedics. Go back to school and get a degree (if you don't already have one) and move up into management.
    Also, you may want to consider teaching.

    I don't know of any jobs like that...i'd actually be pretty interested in an adventure expedition position myself! I have worked a contract in Antarctica as a firefighter though. Raytheon is the contractor for that. www.polar.org
