Paramedics provide medical care in pre–hospital or emergency settings, operating through orders or protocols from a medical control physician. Skills include cardiac monitor interpretation, IV initiation, drug administration, advanced airway maneuvers, and trauma care. Students will complete hospital clinical time and ambulance ride time with area facilities.

Students with a current EMS certification qualify for advanced standing in the program.
