Program Overview

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 through Bartlesville Ambulance and Jane Phillips Medical Center is included in the course. 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.

Prerequisites

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.
