Part Time EME Faculty
Our part time faculty members bring years of emergency medical experience into our classrooms. The majority of our part time instructors, including our lead instructors, are currently full-time employees for local Fire Departments. Therefore, students have the unique opportunity to gain knowledge from several instructors during a single course. Our curriculum includes the most advanced and up-to-date information available. Throughout their educational path with Palomar’s EME department, students are trained by our highly professional team of instructors (including a Medical Doctor, Battalion chiefs, Fire Captains, etc.) We strive to bridge the gap between the need for highly trained emergency medical staff and the individuals striving to meet those educational goals.
