EMT Clinical Rotations
This Section will allow the EMT student to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in EMT Program to the healthcare setting. This is considered the “clinical” portion of the program. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the clinical. Each student will observe and assist hospital personnel in a hospital-based emergency department. Additionally, each student will observe and assist prehospital care providers by riding along in an ambulance unit.. The clinical portion of the program is reserved for the latter half of the semester after the student has mastered several basic concepts. The hours of clinical rotation are arranged through the Clinical Coordinator and the instructor oversees the student in the clinical setting either directly or indirectly.
