Program Description

The primary focus of the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician is to provide basic and limited advanced emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system.  This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation.  Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight, and perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on the ambulance.  The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician is a link from the scene to the emergency health system.

“The Tulsa Community College Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP Executive Office). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
