- Paramedic Program
- Certification Courses
I grew up in the small town of Millville, MA. I became and EMT and studied Nursing at Rhode Island College in Providence. However, I decided to transfer to the University of Massachusetts in Lowell to study Criminal Justice to hopefully become a police officer and firefighter. However, I was diagnosed with a cardiac condition that made those dreams impossible. Instead, I decided to become a paramedic in order to better understand my own condition and to help people like me. I truly love emergency medicine.
I did a lot of research and was looking for a school with an excellent reputation – Pro EMS Center for MEDICS was that and more. I was thrilled to be accepted to such a prestigious program. The accelerated training is intense, but I’m challenged to think critically under pressure in each and every class. The instructors are amazing. They are attentive and knowledgeable, and truly want us to succeed and become the best we can be.
“It’s an intense, accelerated program that challenges your ability to think critically under pressure during every class, which I think is an irreplaceable experience. It prepares us to perform in real-life situations at our absolute best.”
The hands-on training at Pro EMS is outstanding. We have an amazing simulation cadaver labs where we experience situations as close to reality as possible. Ride time is early and plentiful, and our clinical placements are in some of the best medical facilities in the country. I know that I am prepared to make a difference in the lives of my patients. This is truly one of the best places to train for a career as a paramedic.
I am excited to complete my paramedic training at Pro EMS Center for MEDICS. I am not really sure where my future will take me, but I hope to have a long career in medicine. My overall goal is to become the best medical provider I can be. This may mean becoming a Registered Nurse or Physician’s Assistant, or training future generations of paramedics. Regardless of my path, Pro EMS Center for MEDICS has given me an excellent base from which to grow.
