about

Mission

Center for Allied Health Education's Paramedic Program has made a firm commitment to the education of students in the field of pre-hospital care.

Our mission is the training of EMS Providers who are skilled individuals, qualified by technical education, to provide emergency medical services using the latest diagnostic and treatment modalities.

Goals

The Paramedic Program offers a program of emergency medical services training at the certificate level. The program's goal is to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician level. To graduate, students must:

  • Complete all didactic objectives, including: passing all courses by achieving a minimum passing grade.
  • Complete all clinical objectives, including: clinical performance and competency, problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills, professional development and growth.
  • Participate as a team leader working with different team members to effectively diagnose and treat patients with varying medical illnesses and traumatic injuries. The program identifies benchmarks to provide a standard by which the effectiveness of the program in achieving its goals can be evaluated. An assessment plan is in place and can be obtained from the program director.
