This includes, but is not limited to: patient assessment, oxygen therapy, medication administration, shock management, bandaging and splinting, cardiac management, medical emergency management, childbirth, pediatric emergencies, and scene management. The EMS Program is accredited through the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions as recognized by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
