Acadian EMS

We offer a Nationally Accredited Associate Degree path of study in Paramedic Education!

Program Overview

The College of Southern Idaho Paramedic Program is an affordable, nationally accredited program; offering the Associate of Applied Science Degree as its primary path of study.  The ITC program is being phased out. The program utilizes high fidelity patient simulators in state-of-the-art laboratories for student training, as well as a fully operational training ambulance.

Students with completed prerequisites, higher grades, field related work experience and completed degrees will have an increased chance of acceptance.

Our students prepare for the paramedic profession in lecture, lab, and clinical educational environments, which include and exceed the current US DOT National Standard Curriculum.

Throughout the three semester program, students will learn and demonstrate competence in many advanced emergency medical topics such as pathophysiology, pharmacology, assessment, trauma, medical emergencies, cardiology, pediatrics, geriatrics, special operations, and critical care.

Among the various clinical opportunities required are areas such as Emergency Departments, Critical Care Units, Psychiatric Centers, Neonatal Intensive Care Units, Obstetrics, Communication Centers, and with various prehospital EMS agencies.

A required field internship is the final component of the program, where students progress from participants to team leaders in a supervised setting. The internship occurs in an agreed upon urban area outside of the Magic Valley Region. Our current “cap stone” event training is with Acadian Ambulance Service of Lafayette Louisiana.

Upon completion of the program students will be certified in ACLS, PALS, & PHTLS and qualify to take the National Registry Paramedic Exam.

Academic Plan - AAS

"The Paramedic Program of the College of Southern Idaho provides a comprehensive education to a diverse student population in order to create competent, compassionate, and professional entry level paramedics who will meet and serve the emergency medical needs of the Magic Valley Region and beyond."
