|Field of Study:||Emergency Medical Technology/Technician (EMT Paramedic)
|Description:||This full-time graduate program will build upon the knowledge and experience of currently practicing Paramedics to prepare graduates who are able to deliver an expanded set of controlled medical acts to patients suffering from serious medical and traumatic emergencies. Utilizing advanced assessment, critical thinking, and decision-making skills, the Advanced Care Paramedic is able to perform invasive therapeutic interventions to manage life-threatening situations in the pre-hospital environment.
To achieve these outcomes, students will participate in interactive and challenging classroom, laboratory, hospital clinical and field placement learning environments. Hospital clinical placement will have the students developing their skills and knowledge in acute care areas (e.g. adult emergency, intensive care, obstetrics, operating room and pediatric emergency). Due to the invasive nature of the skill sets being learned, class size will be limited and student-faculty ratios will be small.
