About

This Paramedicine program at University of New Haven will prepare you to become a new breed of first responder – one who holds dual certification as both a firefighter and as a paramedic.

Overview

A paramedic has a level of knowledge, skill, and treatment capabilities that are significantly beyond those of an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and which can dramatically improve a patient’s outcome at the hospital. 

In response to the need for these uniquely trained emergency medical care professionals, the University of New Haven developed its Paramedicine program. 

Hands-on learning will be a major part of your education. You’ll ride along with ambulance services and take patients’ vitals. You’ll practice doing chest compressions and starting IV lines on high-fidelity mannequins. You’ll become part of teams who care for patients in whatever medical emergency unfolds. The goal of the paramedicine program is to make your education as real-world as it gets.

Through this program, offered in conjunction with Yale New Haven Hospital, you will also:

  • Become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
  • Gain more than 700 hours of clinical and internship experience through multiple models of EMS services, including hospital-based and fire-based
  • Expand your knowledge through classes in anatomy and physiology at the Yale University School of Medicine
  • Become eligible to sit for the National Registry Paramedic exam at the completion of your studies
