CURRICULUM, OBJECTIVES & INTERDISCIPLINARY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Paramedic Training Program Provided by First Response Emergency Medical Education
(A Wholly Owned Subsidiary of Transformative Healthcare)
A main program objective is:
TO TRAIN NON-PHYSICIANS IN THE PRINCIPLES
OF EVALUATION AND RESUSCITATION OF THE CRITICALLY ILL OR INJURED PATIENT.
The educational goals of the Paramedic student will be:
TO ATTAIN ADVANCED KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE IN THE
EVALUATION OF ACUTE MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, AND
TO DEVELOP THE PSYCHOMOTOR SKILLS NECESSARY TO
PERFORM WELL AND CONTRIBUTE TO STRONG PATIENT OUTCOMES.
The Paramedic curriculum takes place in a fast-paced and intense competency-based interdisciplinary learning environment. In addition to the classroom lecture, labs, and clinical rotations, students are required to participate in a field practicum as a capstone experience. This provides extensive patient contact under direct supervision of trained paramedic preceptors and allows for immediate feedback.
The Transformative Paramedic Program offers interdisciplinary education provided by well-educated and versatile experienced paramedics, nurses, and physicians. With many hours of education above and beyond the paramedic prerequisites, the Transformative Healthcare paramedic program is a time-tested formula of micro-lectures, skill labs, simulation, clinical, and field internships. Our program utilizes high fidelity mannequins, mobile and stationary simulation, Virtual Reality, and an educational philosophy that engages EMTs of all levels of experience while committing to success for all learning styles.
Total course work includes approximately 1,200 hours of didactic (classroom) and skills (lab) instruction at the Center for Clinical Excellence. The required three internships (Simulation, Clinical and field) prepare EMTs to transition into their new role as future Paramedics.
