EM 103 EMT-Basic Fieldwork

This course is offered to EMT-Basics in order to gain sufficient field experience to begin the paramedic program courses. This course will provide the student with supervised riding time as an EMT-Basic as well as three case review sessions to discuss what the students have been exposed to in the field experience. Field rotations place the student in the role of the EMT-Basic on actual emergency calls and expect them to integrate history taking, physical exam and cognitive knowledge learned in their EMT class into the total management of the patient. The student's schedule is developed based upon the Basic Life Support unit assignment location and shift times, and preceptor availability. The student must maintain records of all patient contacts and will be required to submit documentation of all their activities and feedback they receive from their preceptor to the Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare Instructors prior to completion of this course. NOTE: Offered spring semesters only. Contact Hours: (0,2)
