Paramedics are essential members of the health care team who provide time-sensitive care to patients. These individuals take the emergency department to people's homes, to highways and to other remote locations. Paramedics bring life-saving equipment and knowledge to bear in an effort to reduce patient’s suffering and to save lives. Students will use lecture, laboratory and real-world exposure to emergencies to learn the skills needed to care for the sick and injured in the out-of-hospital environment. The program is offered to provide students with variability and flexibility in scheduling. For more information, contact the EMS department at 937-512-5338 for an entrance application packet.
