Students in this program will receive a comprehensive, expert education in advanced paramedic care. The didactic component of the program involves case-based learning, skill practice, and many opportunities for practical scenarios. The clinical component takes place in the hospital setting. Students spend time in the emergency department, operating room, and intensive care unit, as well as in the obstetrical and pediatric departments. These rotations are designed to develop the student’s psychomotor and decision-making skills, as well as building each student’s knowledge base. Finally, students will integrate their paramedic knowledge into ""real life"" situations in the Ambulance preceptorship, where they will practice their skills in the ""real world"" to ensure competency.
