Course Description:


Under the supervision of the local EMS Medical Director, the Mobile Integrated Health Care program is designed for current Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and ambulance service personnel to expand their skills and career opportunities and make a profound difference in the communities where they work. This program will train students to help individuals overcome barriers to accessing and benefiting from health service; serve as advocates, facilitators, liaisons and resource coordinators; provide appropriate care for emergencies, evaluation, triage, disease management and mental health; as well as prevention; and mentor and empower residents, communities and health care systems to achieve positive outcomes and reach optimal wellness. The course specific needs will be determined from the conduction of a local needs assessment and approved by the local medical director. Upon completion, students will be prepared to return to their local agency for additional training to be eligible for one of two designations-- Community Based Paramedic (CBP) or Advanced Practice Paramedic (APP).


Students successfully completing the course are eligible (not required) to sit for the IBSC Certified Community Paramedic Exam (CP-C) at their expense.
