Prehospital Medical Professionals (Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics) are the first to respond to car accidents, heart attacks, multiple casualty incidents, and many other types of emergency and non-emergency medical calls. Every case is a new challenge; every situation is a possible life-saving opportunity. If you wish to work in this rapidly growing health care field, if you have the desire to help people, and if a fast-paced, intense medical career appeals to you, check out our EMS program.

Hands-on Approach

Because EMTs and Paramedics must think and act quickly, our graduates must know what to do in any given emergency. In the EMS Program, you'll learn the medical procedures required to assess and treat victims at the scene and en route to the hospital. Our students learn in an environment that combines labs with lecture.  Our labs are devoted to hands-on training using patient care simulators, and our class lectures are conducted by experienced, certified faculty.

Another vital part of the program occurs in the clinical learning environment. During clinicals, students gain extensive on-the-job experience in hospitals and with various ambulance services. Some organizations that have participated as a clinical site include:

  • Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene
  • Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital in Sweetwater
  • Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo
  • Stephens Memorial Hospital and EMS in Breckenridge
  • MetroCare Ambulance in Abilene
