This program provides comprehensive education in paramedicine. The four-year degree in paramedicine provides an intensive two-year concentration in paramedicine that not only enables student eligibility for paramedic certification, but provides content to engender leadership and advanced clinical practice abilities in emergency medical services.


Central Washington University EMS Paramedicine Program has a long history of maintaining high academic standards and skill requirements for our graduates that often exceed both state and national minimum standards for paramedic programs. This translates into a very busy, very intense year of learning, both in the classroom and in the field. This level of academic rigor prepares the students not only for successful completion of the national certification exam, but for a rewarding and accomplished career as a professional paramedic.
