      PARAMEDIC 

Paramedics work under the direction of a physician through written standing orders, and radio communications. Paramedics have advanced knowledge of normal human physiology, pathophysiology of acute and chronic disease, pharmacology, and electrocardiology. They use this knowledge to recognize, assess and appropriately manage emergencies of acutely ill or injured patients before they arrive at the hospital.

The curriculum consists of classroom instruction with a skills laboratory; in-hospital clinical practice; and a supervised field internship to prepare students for the National Registry EMT-Paramedic Exam, and entry-level Paramedic practice.

   
Special Considerations for Paramedic Applicants
   
Students will be evaluated on their cognitive ability, psychomotor skills and behavioral characteristics throughout the program. Students must be successful in all three domains of learning to be eligible for graduation. It should be noted that completion of the Paramedic program does not guarantee state and national licensing to practice as a paramedic. Paramedics must pass appropriate licensing boards to practice as a paramedic.
