As the most highly trained pre-hospital emergency care provider in the EMS field, the paramedic accepts the challenging responsibility for patient care. A willingness to accept this challenge and direct others to carry out treatment plans is the first step in becoming a paramedic. Paramedicine is a relatively young field with a wide range of employment opportunities, including ambulance services, fire departments, police departments, hospitals, helicopter services, and educational institutions.  The Paramedic Program at South Central College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).
