The Paramedic Program is designed to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.

The paramedic provides care to emergency patients in an out-of-hospital setting. The emerging roles and responsibilities of the paramedic also include public education, health promotion, and participation in injury and illness prevention programs, as well as providing initial treatment.

The course of study is designed to enhance all facets of the paramedic’s scope of practice.

Career Opportunities

Employment opportunities include hospital emergency rooms, private ambulance services, off-shore oil rigs, movie sets, reality shows and salaried fire and emergency medical services departments. Emergency medical services and fire science are synonymous in some communities. Fire Departments are one of the major employers of paramedics and a large number of our students are enrolled in both disciplines with a major emphasis in Paramedicine. A degree is essential for advancement and financial compensation in most fire departments; some states now require a minimum of the Associate of Applied Science degree to certify.
