Along with a sound foundational knowledge you’ll get hands-on training in a medic unit, using simulation mannequins, heart monitors and more. This degree includes emergency medical technician and paramedic certification courses along with courses designed to enhance management skills in the healthcare industry. The field of paramedicine is evolving to new areas beyond emergency care in the streets, and paramedics have many new challenges caring for the ill and injured, which require a higher standard of learning, especially in light of national security.
