EMS 234: Paramedic Assessment Lab

Credits 1
The simulation lab is designed to present paramedic students with clinical and field simulation, in a controlled setting, to engage the student and evaluate their skills development, knowledge base and critical thinking skills. This course allows students the opportunity to learn in a risk-free environment, and to improve competence, practice mastery of their patient assessment and management and advance their efficiency. This is a hands-on course where the physical and mental skills necessary for the appropriate assessment and treatment of patients will be taught and tested in small groups and/or individually. Students will receive the opportunity for self-reflection and should be prepared for rigorous questioning and skill demonstration in front of the instructor and their peers to promote an enhanced practicum experience.
