• Program Learning Outcomes


     
    • Integrates a complex depth and comprehensive breadth knowledge of the anatomy physiology of all human systems.

    • Integrate comprehensive knowledge of EMS systems, safety/wellbeing of the paramedic, and medical/legal and ethical issues to improve the health of EMS personnel, patients, and the community.

    • Integrate comprehensive anatomical and medical terminology and abbreviations into the written and oral communication with colleagues and other health care professionals.

    • Integrate comprehensive knowledge of pathophysiology of major human systems with patient assessment and management of illness and injury.

    • Integrate scene and patient assessment findings with knowledge of epidemiology and pathophysiology to form a field impression, develop a list of differential diagnoses and apply clinical reasoning to modify the assessment and formulate a treatment plan.

    • Integrate comprehensive knowledge of pharmacology to formulate a treatment plan intended to mitigate medical and traumatic emergencies and improve the overall health of a sick or injured patient.

    • Integrate complex knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology into the assessment of a sick or injured patient to develop and implement a treatment plan with the goal of assuring a patent airway, adequate mechanical ventilation, and respiration for patients of all ages.
