Paramedic Program

The deadline for the Paramedic program is November 2nd, 2018 for the program cohort starting Spring 2019.

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

Program Overview

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

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.

Students will have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of clinical opportunities including; Emergency Departments, Critical Care Units, Psychiatric Centers, Neonatal Intensive Care Units, Obstetrics, Communication Centers, and various pre-hospital 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.
