EMT 251 - Introduction to the Clinical Experience

1 CR
This course is designed to provide the first semester clinical hours necessary to meet the requirements of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Paramedic curriculum. This course includes clinical rotations at various sites including ambulance, hospital, and skilled care facilities. In addition, classroom time is scheduled to review clinical procedures and review progress of the students.  Clinical education represents the most important component of paramedic education since this is where the student learns to synthesize cognitive and psychomotor skills.  To be effective, clinical education will integrate and reinforce the didactic and skills laboratory components of the program.  Clinical instruction will follow sound educational principles, be logically sequenced to proceed from simple to complex tasks, have specific objectives, and be closely supervised and evaluated.
