Welcome the Palomar College Emergency Medical Education Department web site.  Please visit the menus above for information about courses and training for careers in the Emergency Medical Service field.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The application period for the August 2014 Paramedic Program (Class 45) is now closed. Applications for January 2015 Paramedic Program (Class 46) will be available in Fall 2014. Please revisit this web site for updates.

EME will be offering a CPR (BLS for Healthcare Provider) course on Thursday, June 12, at 6:00pm at the Palomar College Escondido Center.  For additional classes click on the CPR page above.    Remember you must complete the online portion of the course prior to attending the course. Visit the AHA web site for details.

Update:

EME will be encouraging all students to begin a portfolio of your educational, work and ride-along experiences. This portfolio will be used to more accurately see where students are in preparation for paramedic school. At some point, this will become mandatory at Palomar College for entrance into the paramedic program and will begin with EMT experience. The form can be found under the FORMS tab to the right.

We also offer the following classes:

    • CPR for Health Care Providers
    • Emergency Medical Responder (equivalent to American Red Cross Emergency Medical Response course)
    • EMT Recertification
