Diploma Program in Paramedic

The Paramedic program at Sanford-Brown is designed to provide students with an introduction to the methods for assessing the patient and managing traumas and medical emergencies. The program gives students the opportunity to learn how to safely transport the sick or injured to a medical facility while maintaining communication with physicians if required.

Students will also be trained in their operational responsibilities at a medical incident, crime scene, or hazardous material incident. The core curriculum is structured to include a lecture component, an imaging laboratory component and an integrated clinical component. The final externship portion of the curriculum consists of supervised full-time experiences in a clinical environment, which requires competencies, logs and evaluations completed by the student.

At the conclusion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their externship, studied, and practiced their skills should have the skills to seek entry-level employment as emergency medical technicians an/or Paramedics.
