Associate in Science Degree

The Associate in Science Degree in Paramedic Technology provides entry-level opportunities for students to pursue a career as pre-hospital care providers.  Paramedics work in the fast-paced world of emergency medicine in rescue vehicles and emergency rooms as well as in doctors' offices and other health care facilities. Paramedics provide for the needs of their patients and are advocates and health educators for patients, families and communities.  They educate people to take proactive measures to ensure they live a healthier life. 

This paramedic program prepares licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) professionals to provide care for diverse populations within the community.  In order to do so, students need to acquire paramedic knowledge, clinical skills, highly-developed communication and clinical reasoning and judgment skills.  Students without an EMT license are able to prepare for the license in a separate preliminary quarter and must pass the licensure exam by the third quarter of the Paramedic program.

Throughout the curriculum, students engage in clinical and laboratory experiences to complement classroom learning. 

Graduates of the New England Tech Associate Degree in Paramedic Technology are prepared to work in a wide variety of emergency settings, as well as hospitals, home health care, long-term care, healthcare clinics, public health, and outpatient care, and are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician paramedic level exam.
