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.
