Emergency Medical Services - EMS - Paramedic A.A.S.
Associate of Applied Science
Advisor: Stacey Bowen · Phone: 410-386-8020 · Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This program prepares students to sit for the National Registry for EMT—Paramedic (NREMT-P) licensure exam, which is currently required for practice in most states, including Maryland. This is a selective admission program intended to serve firefighters (paid force or volunteer) in the State who meet minimum requirements and maintain an affiliation with a fire station. The format will allow students statewide to complete non-clinical work at institutions close to home, clinical didactic courses as a hybrid online/on-site lab combination and clinical affiliation with local emergency services. This is a selective program with the following requirements for acceptance and continued enrollment in the program (see the Selective Admissions information at the beginning of the College Catalog for complete information): Current EMT-B certification, current affiliation with a fire station, and completion of any required transitional work (ENG A-F/ELL-095, MAT-099, READ A-F)
* EMS-101, EMS Systems and Rescue Operations, is open to any student who has met the academic and certification requirements for acceptance to the program and has access to turn-out gear. All 100-level courses must be completed prior to any 200-level courses. Other prerequisites may be required. See course descriptions for information. Students must maintain an overall 2.000 GPA and earn a minimum grade of C in all science and clinical courses.
