The Center for Emergency Medicine has been offering Paramedic education for over 30 years. During that time our program has undergone numerous changes from curriculum to faculty. One constant has remained the ability to educate competent entry level paramedics who are able to meet the needs of the ever changing field of prehospital care.
The faculty of the Center for Emergency Medicine consists of experienced educators, prehospital providers, registered nurses, and emergency physicians. We have developed the Center’s Paramedic education program to equip students with the knowledge, skills and values necessary to develop as medical professionals. Throughout the program, students receive instruction in the art and science of emergency medicine through lecture, lab, and clinical education in the hospital and field. The curriculum involves students in these components of education concurrently. This enables paramedic students to master theory and practical application quickly.
