Paramedic

Paramedics care for patients at the scene of an accident or sudden illness and while transporting patients by ambulance to the hospital. They are vital members of both the health care delivery system and public safety first responder network. They receive extensive education in the use of advanced procedures, medications and specialized equipment to manage medical emergencies and traumatic injuries. Through careful patient assessment and team-oriented medical care, paramedics help prevent and reduce death and disability from illness and injury. Paramedics generally work for ambulance services or fire departments but some paramedics find employment in hospital emergency departments, aeromedical services, medical clinics, sports medicine, tactical medicine, industrial medicine and similar occupations.

The credential is recognized by Pennsylvania Department of Health for Pennsylvania certification as a paramedic.
