Community Paramedic/MIH

Community Paramedic NEW- Mobile Integrated Health Care Part

This is a program designed with advanced training to respond to non-acute 9-1-1 calls for people needing medical care but have no life threatening symptoms. At these visits, the Community Paramedics provide primary care for minor illnesses instead of a transport by ambulance to the Emergency Department. Training includes assessment skills and completing clinical rotations in non-emergency specialty settings. The Community Paramedic Program closes the gap by expanding the role of EMS personnel. Areas of interest will include primary care, public health, disease management, prevention and wellness, and mental health. The Community Paramedic Program adapts to the specific needs and resources of each community. Upon successful completion of course students are eligible to take the Certified Community Paramedic (CP-C) Examination. This course is online and students are required to complete a minimum of twelve hours each week online blackboard assignments. NOTE: A liability and accident insurance fee of $14.00 is due on the day of registration for Part B. For more information, please call 678-8251 or email us at EMSCONED@faytechcc.edu.
