The paramedicine major is designed for students who plan to become a certified pre-hospital professional in emergency medical services. The paramedicine major provides the graduate with the requisite skill sets for entry-level competence in advanced life support emergency medical services, as well as superior skills in advanced life support and leadership abilities in emergency medical services.

The deliver format includes classroom lectures, group discussions, laboratory skills training, hospital clinical experience with observations and practice, field internships, educational internships, administrative internships, pre-hospital research, and simulated scenario-based exercises of complex patient condition which willfully prepare the student for occupations in advanced emergency medical services. This nationally-accredited program meets all of the national curriculum and Washington State standards.

In addition to general admissions, all applicants must meet specific entrance criteria (including a current EMT certification) and be approved by the paramedic selection committee before being admitted into the program. Admission to CWU does not assure entry into the paramedicine major.

Completion of the major listed below and other degree requirements leads to the bachelor of science in paramedicine and eligibility to take the National Registry EMTs examination for paramedic certification. For students not seeking a degree, a certification option is available.

 

Optional Course in the Concentration
