In order to work as a paramedic, you need to think critically, quickly adapt to any situation and have specialized emergency care knowledge. Paramedics assist police, fire and medical professionals with transporting patients to hospitals and administering life-saving services. One minute, you could be helping deliver a baby and the next, you could be responding to a 911 hit and run call. It is a career that requires the right blend of education and on the job training.
Students enrolled in the Associate’s Degree Emergency Services program learn from active and retired EMTs, fire chiefs and paramedics with over two decades of career experience. Our expert faculty not only makes a difference in the classroom, they get students in on the action. Field trips to emergency rooms, paramedic call centers and fire stations give Monroe College students a competitive edge.
An Associate’s degree prepares students for EMT certification exams. It can also propel them to continue studying for a Bachelor’s degree from our School of Criminal Justice.
