Paramedic AAS

An Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic, through performance of patient assessments and provision of emergency medical care, strives to meet the goals of preventing and reducing mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury. Paramedics primarily provide care to emergency patients in an out of hospital setting. The Paramedic program prepares the graduate for a career as a certified EMT Paramedic. A graduate of the Paramedic Program is a highly-skilled, health care provider.

The curriculum includes a balance of paramedic and college level courses. The paramedic courses are designed to assist the student to maintain high-quality patient care. The graduate will be able to recognize, assess, and manage medical emergencies of acutely ill or injured persons in any pre hospital settings. Paramedics are responsible and accountable to medical direction, the public, and their peers. Paramedics work in the field under the direction of a physician through written standing orders and radio communications. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the National Registry (NREMTP) Certification Exam. Please note that the general education courses do not have to be taken in the particular order. Interested students should speak with the program coordinator or instructor for viable General Education course sequences.

Program Mission Statement for Medical Laboratory Technician

Program Mission Statement

 

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Medical Laboratory Technology provides the academic and practical experience necessary to attain entry-level competency in the practice field. This educational model has a strong academic structure and offers intensive technical development. This model also emphasizes the critical importance of leadership in the field of clinical laboratory science through the application of principles related to problem solving and evaluation, education, communication, research and management. The faculty of the MLT Program has a responsibility for the impact the student enrolled in the MLT Program may have on patient testing. In order to fulfill this responsibility, the program has established minimum technical standards that must be met, with or without reasonable documented accommodation, in order to participate in the program and graduate.
