What is a Paramedic (EMT-P)?
An EMT-P provides advanced emergency treatment to patients in the pre-hospital setting. Saving lives is the most rewarding aspect of a paramedic career. The well- trained paramedic can also reduce the length os a patient's hospital stay by preventing the danger of more serious injury that could occur through incorrect treatment in the stages before hospitalization.
How do I become a Paramedic?
The Arnot Health Paramedic Program is an eleven month course (two semesters). Classes are two nights a week and some Saturdays. Classes ar held at EMSTAR Training Center. In this program, students receive instruction in the practice of pre-hospital emergency medicine through lecture, labs, clinical and field training. The curriculum is designed to involve students in the four components of training concurrently. This enable the paramedic students to master theory and practical application quickly.
