The Paramedic degree program is designed to wrap around the 15-course series that leads to the Paramedic certificate. The degree program allows you to complete your EMT-Basic and EMT-Internship during your first year of study.

Paramedics interact with critically ill and injured patients and administer medication for emergencies ranging from heart attacks to emergency childbirths.

This academic program is primarily designed for those who wish to enter the workforce immediately following graduation. Job placement has always been very high, with near 100 percent placement for recent graduates.

This program is offered by the Cardiorespiratory and Emergency Medicine Department.
