Our goal is to develop a pool of clinically sophisticated and competent paramedics who are able and motivated to raise the bar at their respective services, and to ensure competency in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning domains. We achieve these goals by using a variety of educational approaches, including interactive lectures, simulation exercises and field internships. In order for practical lab sessions to be effective, students need to understand not only how to do the skill/procedure, but why the skill is worth doing and what purpose it serves for improving patient care. With a heavy emphasis on high-fidelity human patient simulation and retrospective case debriefing, our paramedic students attain clinical and procedural familiarization before going into clinical and field rotations and treating live patients.
We are accepting applications for upcoming classes.
