Paramedic Students trying to restart heart of person in neck brace using a portable A E D device.



The Paramedicine program at MCC prepares students interested in helping those in need on the front lines.

Emergency medical technicians and paramedics are the first responders to medical emergencies. Students in the program learn important criteria for becoming an EMT, including CPR, open water dive and rescue, prehospital trauma life support, critical care and more.

The MCC Paramedicine program is ideal for students who want to help others and perform well in stressful, quick-changing situations.

Our goal is to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains, with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.
