We believe strongly that EMS education should be as close to real-life as possible. Students are mentored by working paramedics to learn the dynamic environment of pre-hospital care. Our faculty prepare students for the stress of austere medicine by providing students with a firm foundation of technical knowledge, crisis management techniques, team leadership skills and therapeutic communication strategies.
The OHSU/Oregon Tech EMT program provides students opportunities to practice their craft through a nuique combination of:
- High-fidelity simulations with EMT and Paramedic teams.
Practice concepts of crew resource management, team leadership and followership.
- Human cadaver invasive skills lab
Practice all skills within the EMT scope of practice on non-embalmed specimens
Forged over 40 years of EMS education, our partnerships with progressive EMS organizations provide students the experience of responding to 911 calls. Students spend 24 hours with metropolitan advanced life support ambulance and fire response crews. During rotations students have the opportunity to interact with patients in crisis and perform EMT skills under the supervision of their preceptor.
