Paramedic

Cambrian’s experienced faculty will train you to safely and efficiently handle the rigors of this fast-paced and often very intense profession that is also extremely rewarding.

Courses focus on basic patient care, with supporting subjects in high acuity pathologies, biological sciences, humanities and EMS services. Clinical practice, planned concurrently with classes, emphasizes emergency care procedures. You will learn how to prevent or reduce complications in the care of the sick and injured during the pre-hospital phase of patient care. In addition to providing emergency medical care, you will be trained to identify and correct potential health and safety hazards.

You will have a rotation of clinical placement in area hospitals and in-town and out-of-town ambulance services. You must be prepared to cover the cost incurred in clinical and preceptorship in-town and out-of-town. You must be Educationally Certified by a provincial Medical Direction prior to preceptorship. You will be required to cover this cost.
