** This is a computer based course and access to a computer outside of the classroom is required

 Course Description: (PARAMEDIC COURSE)

The EMT-Paramedic program will teach and prepare you to achieve the highest level of certification for a pre-hospital provider. The course consists of an overall length of approximately 18 months which includes approximately (12) months of didactics, skills lab sessions and skills scenario evaluations followed by a (270) hour clinical internship with an assigned hospital preceptor where you will start to apply the knowledge and skills that you learned in a live patient setting. The clinical internship will be followed by a (250) hour field internship where you will ride on an EMS unit with an experienced Paramedic preceptor to further build upon the assessment, management and treatment skills developed during your classroom and clinical experiences and apply them to the out-of-hospital setting as a provider and team leader. At the conclusion of the program you must be able to demonstrate, through testing and evaluation, the competencies and skills required of the entry-level EMT-Paramedic.

Accreditation Status:

Comprehensive Medical Teaching Institute/ Tufts Medical Center Consortium for Paramedic Education Paramedic program holds a Letter of Review, which is NOT a Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) accreditation status, but is a status granted by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) 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. However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation

Course Design

The design of this program is based off the EMT-Paramedic National Standard Curriculum. The program consists of four components of instruction: didactic – skills laboratory/scenarios – clinical internship – capstone field internship. The didactic and skills laboratory/scenarios occur concurrently. After successful completion of these components the student will move onto the clinical internship followed by the capstone field internship. After successful completion of the four components the student will meet with the Program and Medical Directors to review and evaluate their terminal competencies in the cognitive, psychomotor and affective learning domains.

Course Length:

The emphasis of Paramedic education is based on the competence of the graduate, not the amount of education that they receive. The time involved in educating a paramedic student to an acceptable level of competence depends on many variables. The average paramedic program consists of 1000-1200 hours of instruction. This program consists of a minimum of(1008hrs.) of instruction over approximately 18 months. Course length, however, may vary according to a number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • The student’s basic academic skills competence
  • Student motivation
  • The student’s prior emergency/health care experience
  • Prior academic achievements
  • Clinical/Field/Academic resources available

Course Hours Breakdown: 

  • Didactic: 326 hours
  • Skills Laboratory: 162 hours
  • Clinical Internship: 270 hours
  • Field Internship: 250 hours

Note: These hours are the minimum recommendations. Revisions to these hours may be required according to the student or course needs in order to achieve the competence of the program graduate.

The National Continued Competency Requirements are determined by the NREMT Board of Directors based upon widespread input from EMS researchers, EMS physician and EMS provider stakeholders. The NCCR comprises 50% of the overall requirements necessary to recertify. Topics in the NCCR are chosen among the following: evidence based medicine, any changes in the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, science related position papers that affect EMS patient care, topics which cover patient care tasks that have low frequency yet high criticality, and articles which improve knowledge to deliver patient care.

The NREMT will provide the educational materials for this component to the EMS community as part of their mission to protect the public.

This replaces the 48 Hour Refresher of previous years

The Community Paramedic helps fill the gaps in the health care delivery system by expanding access to health care for under-served groups in Massachusetts and significantly reduce costs for health care providers and taxpayers in the Commonwealth. This program is set up in two modules (150 Didactic hours and 150 observation hours with an approved Massachusetts MIH unit and home healthcare rotation).

This program will prepare students to sit for the International Board of Specialty Certification “Community Paramedic Certification” exam.

This 20 Hour course is designed to meet and/or exceed National and Massachusetts requirements for EMT Basics. This course replaces the Massachusetts basic refresher from years past.

This program is designed to strengthen the Chain of Survival and provide training on 1 and 2 rescuer adult CPR and Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s). Responders may include workplace first aid providers, security personnel, lifeguards, or professional firefighters. The program establishes guidelines and protocols in the use of AED’s in accordance with AHA 2005 Revised Guidelines.

This program is set up in two modules (150 Didactic hours and 150 observation hours with an approved Massachusetts MIH unit and home healthcare rotation). This program will prepare the student to sit for the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification CP-C examination

This class covers adult child and Infant CPR (including two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag-valve mask); airway obstruction (both conscious and unconscious); automated external defibrillation; special resuscitation situations; and other cardiopulmonary emergencies.

Who should attend: Healthcare providers; physicians, nurses, patient aids, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, dental assistants, dental hygienist, physician’s assistants, and other allied health personnel.

Basic: A complete basic 12 lead course that starts with a simplified overview of cardiac conduction system function and goes through normal and abnormal EKG patterns and ACLS applications. No jargon, just plain, clear information to build real clinical skills. You will learn to recognize and understand normal and abnormal EKG strips. You will practice recognition and analysis of EKG strips as you gain understanding of the common EKG rhythms. It can also help you develop skills to make the EKG portion of ACLS certification go a lot smoother.

Advanced: The skills from Basic 12 lead EKG are reviewed to help you develop confidence and speed with many new tracings. Clinical implications are emphasized. New concepts include: blocked PACs, PACs with aberrant conduction, SVT with aberrancy, atrial tachycardia with block, new variations on the classic AV blocks, fusion beats, the Pacemaker Code, and reentry – including WPW.

The measurement of end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) currently is the optimal method of continuously monitoring the adequacy of ventilation and circulation in adult through infants. It measures expired carbon dioxide using infrared spectroscopy. ETCO2 can be of value in the assessment of ventilation, metabolism, and of a patient’s circulation status. CMTI will teach you the basic fundamentals of how Capnography is applicable in the EMS community. This We will gives you a basic introduction to the technology of capnography & discuss the uses of capnography in the pre-hospital setting.

The ACLS curriculum is consistent with widely accepted guidelines for professional level cardiopulmonary resuscitation. ACLS is intended for Emergency personnel in intensive care or critical care departments and emergency medical providers. ACLS focuses on training and/or education in basic cardiac rhythm analysis (ECG interpretation). Professional-level Basic Life Support (BLS/CPR/AED) required or included in ACLS course.

PALS is intended for emergency personnel in intensive care or critical care departments and emergency medical providers responsible for the well-being of infants and children. The overall goal of the PALS course is to provide healthcare professionals with didactic and psychomotor skills training in the recognition and treatment of conditions that may lead to a cardiopulmonary arrest in an infant or child. PALS incorporates both pre-hospital and hospital management of pediatric emergencies. PALS program materials are based upon the most recent science, treatment recommendations and guidelines. Additionally, PALS has been nationally approved by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS*). CECBEMS is the national accrediting body for Emergency Medical Services continuing education courses and course providers, and employs a peer-review process for accreditation similar to other healthcare professions.
