The EMS Paramedicine Program at Central Washington University is unique in a number of ways. The Program and associated coursework is very intensive with a considerable emphasis on advanced medical practice; the extensive network of clinical and field affiliates provide a wealth of clinical experiences, but demand considerable travel; the student class of each academic year is a “captured cohort” that matriculates through the Program as a group and is regarded as a dedicated class unique to each academic year; students of the EMS Paramedicine Program undergo markedly extensive incidental education (e.g., certification courses and specialized training in topics of EMS); and all Paramedicine students experience a very intensive clinical experience that demands close contact with patients and required immunizations from disease, just to name a few of the unique attributes.
These unique aspects of the EMS Paramedicine Program imbue a notable burden on its students in the form of additional expenses and time commitments. Having the financial resources to successfully complete the EMS Paramedicine Program at Central Washington University is an important consideration for all prospective candidates. As such, the Program endeavors to disclose, to the greatest extent possible, reasonable cost estimates to its participants.
