To be the best, you must work with the best.

Small beginnings can create amazing outcomes, and we believe that the sincere commitment and dedication to improvement is what sets good organizations apart from the ones that will change your life.

We teach what goes far beyond what you’ll need to pass your exam, giving you the full picture of your responsibilities and your impact on the job. The end result: better performance and better outcomes for the people you serve. Our curriculum has been carefully planned and re-imagined over the years to better meet your needs throughout.

Center for MEDICS’ Philosophy


Your medical expertise is the foundation of your practice. We don’t “teach to the test.” Instead, we deliver the essentials you need to practice paramedicine at the highest level, empowering you with a rich understanding of the human body, its diseases, and their treatments.


Knowledge is just the beginning however.  The heart of paramedic practice is making difficult decisions.  Through extensive simulation and real-world experience, we help you develop the judgment and confidence to make the hard choices.


We don’t work alone, deciding in a vacuum. We rely on each other as we navigate the complexities of paramedicine. We believe in a strong team-based approach to learning,  as we work to hone the essential skills of collaboration toward a shared goal: saving lives.


Paramedics are an essential part of the emergency healthcare team. You’ll learn from a variety of dedicated faculty alongside a diverse group of students, each of whom brings experience and passion to the job. And as you learn from all of them, your capabilities will be the better for it.


Each of us takes our own path to EMS, but all of us share the same basic goal: to help people.  Service to the community is why EMS exists and at CFM you’ll explore the varied (and growing!) ways paramedics can give back to the communities that have given them so much.


It's not about where you are now, but where you're headed.

This is the real deal. I’ve learned so much more than I thought I ever would.
Best decision. Hands down.

It's totally rewarding when students really dig in and become more curious about what this field has to offer.  I am grateful to be a part of what's going on at CFM.
