Paramedic program

Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics provide a higher level of patient care, including advanced airway techniques, a greater variety of medication treatments, and cardiac rhythm interpretation. The advanced scope of practice of AEMTs and Paramedics requires a greater depth of understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology. The Advanced EMT program prepares students to be pre-hospital professionals who provide basic and limited advanced emergency care for critical and emergent patients. The program helps students build upon their EMT knowledge in anatomy and physiology, medical emergency, cardiology and trauma.

The Paramedic program prepares students to be pre-hospital professionals who focus on providing advanced emergency care for critical and emergent patients. The program helps students reach their full potential by developing academic and clinical competencies, critical thinking skills and leadership skills. Temple College has a long history of producing highly qualified graduates who are becoming leaders within their respective organizations.

Program Outcomes

Clinical Affiliations

We strongly believe that the clinical experience our students receive is a vital part of their clinical education and are proud of the clinical affiliations we have to offer. We are fortunate to have access to Level 1 Trauma Centers and academic teaching hospitals. Students learn in teaching hospitals and are mentored by physicians, not nurses. Temple is a hospital-intensive area with Scott and White Medical Center, McLane Children’s Hospital and numerous award-winning field clinical rotations.
