Be on the front lines of emergency and critical situations where you can use your medical expertise, compassionate nature and ability to think on your feet to respond to emergencies and save lives.
As a vital health-care professional, you are a first responder at the scenes of accidents, medical emergencies and other incidents who assesses patients and uses specialized techniques, equipment and medicine to provide aid. As a paramedic, you are well prepared to address a variety of medical conditions and prepare patients for further care at the hospital. Your life-saving capabilities extend to your ability to communicate effectively with doctors and nurses in emergency departments to ensure the safe transition of patients.
As a graduate of Humber’s Paramedic program, and upon successfully completing the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Advanced Emergency Medical Care Assistant (A-EMCA) examination, you can find part-time or full-time employment in Ontario’s ambulance system. You can also pursue work on emergency response teams, with transfer services and in sports injury management services, with potential to progress into advanced paramedical services and management.
