Health Professions Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.)- Paramedic Science Program

An emergency medical technician (EMT) provides basic life support to patients in the pre-hospital environment. Paramedics bring the emergency department to the field by providing critical treatment and advanced life support — equivalent to treatments offered in the first 15-20 minutes of care in the emergency room. Paramedics and EMTs, both EMS practitioners, work cohesively to stabilize the patient’s condition during emergency transport and transfer.
