EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN - BASIC (EMT)
This 8 month program consists of classroom education and a minimum of
112 hours of clinical hands-on experience divided between Genesys Health Park Emergency Department and third-ride-alongs
with area ambulance services. Clinical experience allows the student to apply skills learned in the classroom and gain necessary
patient care experience prior to entering the job market. This course meets or exceeds the national requirements for EMT-Basic
education and successful course completion allows the student to challenge the National Registry examination at the EMT-Basic
Students that are planning on attending Medical School, PA School, or Nursing will find this program to be a good stepping stone. Working as an EMT is considered to be a position of responsibility. This is due to the autonomy that providers operate under in the field. It is also a good way to gain patient contact hours. Both of these items will help give you a competitive edge over other applicants to your respective school.
All EMT Programs are now held at the Genesys Materials Management Building in the EMS Education Classrooms.
