Paramedics are advanced providers of emergency medical care and are highly educated in topics such as anatomy and physiology, cardiology, medications, and medical procedures. They build on their Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) education and learn more skills such as administering medications, starting intravenous lines, providing advanced airway management for patients, and learning to resuscitate and support patients with significant problems such as heart attacks and traumas. Clinical training for this program will be held at a variety of healthcare facilities. Upon completion of the training, students will be eligible to sit for the National Registry Examination at the Paramedic level and become licensed in the State of Oklahoma.
Students must have successfully completed the EMT program, passed the NREMT certification exam, be at least 18 years of age, and have a high school diploma or GED. Applicants will be subject to a criminal background check and drug screening and will need to provide a current shot record and Heartsaver CPR card.
Paramedic Anatomy & Physiology is a prerequisite** for the Paramedic Program. This course is designed to guide students through the systems of the human body and develop a basic understanding of the native language of the health profession. Students will study the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy along with the functions and processes of the structures of the human body (physiology). Topics include body organization, homeostasis, cytology, histology and the integumentary skeletal, muscular, nervous systems and special senses.
