Paramedic Program
Paramedics are health care professionals providing the highest level of care available outside of a hospital. Paramedics work under the supervision of a physician through written protocols or online guidance to extend advanced life support care to the sick and injured. Paramedics are trained in all aspects of pre-hospital emergency care. During a medical transport, the paramedic is responsible for the safety and well-being of the patient. Paramedics may work on ambulances, in industrial settings, and on aeromedical transport teams. In addition to the skills possessed by EMTs, paramedics also:
  • Start intravenous lines
  • Administer a wide variety of medications
  • Insert advanced airway devices
  • Read electrocardiograms
  • Use manual defibrillators and cardiac pacemakers
  • Other advanced skills delegated by the medical control physician
