Important Vaccination Information for Students Enrolled in Health-Related Programs
Vaccinations are not required to enroll in FTCC health-related programs. However, if you are UNVACCINATED, it is UNLIKELY that you will successfully complete a health-related program. Most health programs require a clinical rotation with an affiliated healthcare provider and most, if not all, providers require proof of vaccination to participate in the clinical rotation. If you have not received the COVID-19 vaccination, please discuss your vaccination status with program leaders prior to enrollment and consider whether you should enroll in another field of study.

EMT/Paramedic Courses

Mobile Integrated Health Care Part A & Part B

This program is designed to provide advanced training which prepares students to respond to non-acute 9-1-1 calls for people needing medical care but have no life threatening symptoms. At these visits, the Mobile Integrated Health Care – Community Paramedics provide primary care for minor illnesses instead of a transport by ambulance to the Emergency Department.

Training includes assessment skills and completing clinical rotations in non-emergency specialty settings. The Mobile Integrated Health Care – Community Paramedic Program closes the gap by expanding the role of EMS personnel. Emphasis will be placed upon primary care, public health, disease management, prevention and wellness, and mental health. The Mobile Integrated Health Care – Community Paramedic Program adapts to the specific needs and resources of each community.

Students who successfully complete the Mobile Integrated Health Care Part A and Mobile Integrated Health Care Part B will be eligible for the Certified Community Paramedic (CP-C) Exam.
