Frequently Asked Questions:
- Where can I do my ER Clinicals? Currently, we have contracts with Chester County Hospital and the Main Line Health System. While we are currently pursuing other hospital contracts, we cannot guarantee that they will be ready and available for your class.
- Where can I do my EMS Field Time? Students can ride with one of the various ALS agencies in which we currently have educational contracts.
- Can I do field time with my home department? We can try to establish a contract with your home department, but it cannot be guaranteed. This can be discussed with the AEMT Program Coordinator at the beginning of class.
- What do students do during the practical skills days? Students practice all of the skills in the AEMT scope of practice. Students are in groups of 4-6. Each group has their own instructor and equipment to ensure that every student gets ample time for student skills checks. Students also participate in patient simulations where they’re expected to manage a patient at the AEMT level.
