Paramedic Science


The program will teach the fundamental skills needed to be an excellent paramedic clinician. The paramedic profession is built around interaction with people, meaning the program will utilize information to enhance human interaction as it applies to the prehospital environment. This program seeks to provide opportunities for students to develop an appreciation of patient diversity with the goal of developing treatment plans to meet the needs of the individual patient interaction. More information on the program structure and requirements can be found on the program webpage:

Maintaining professionalism is essential for our growth as a profession. Professional providers are set apart from others by virtue of dignity, worthiness, and level of responsibility. Peers look to professional providers for leadership and expect more than an ordinary demonstration of good human relations. This program will require professional demeanor from all participants.

The program curriculum follows the National EMS Education Standards and Scope of Practice. It is structured so that content and skill development is progressive and provides maximum opportunity for students to synthesize and apply information in order to function at increasingly higher cognitive, affective, and psychomotor levels. The curriculum is centered on the acquisition of current concepts in emergency medical care based on evidence-based practices. Curriculum changes reflect the ongoing evaluation process as well as changes in educational, technological, and healthcare practice. It requires a student’s commitment to applying material through active learning for acquisition of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor competencies.

The County College of Morris Paramedic Science Program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
