The Paramedic is not only a health care
professional; he/she is the eyes, ears and hands of the emergency physician.
Through the paramedic's observations and report, the doctor in charge must be
able to make an accurate assessment of a patient that the doctor can neither
see nor touch. Through the Paramedic's hands, the doctor renders skilled and
appropriate treatment. In their management of the critically ill and injured,
paramedics and doctor are linked only by a radio, and the success of their
endeavor depends on earned mutual trust and respect. Our Paramedic Program
is one of the oldest and most established paramedic education programs in
Colorado and the United States.
The Paramedic Program begins annually in
January and July. Classes are held Monday, Wednesday, & Friday; with a
required 4 hour Competency Lab on either Tuesday or Thursday.
The Paramedic Program is administered by St.
Anthony Hospital PreHospital Services. The Paramedic Program Administrative
staff includes Gina Soriya, MD, Scott Phillips, MS NR-P, Tracy Collins, RN,
BSN, NR-P, Robert Matoba, BS, MA, Paramedic, and Marilyn Bourn, RN, MSN, NR-P.
Principal faculty for the Paramedic Program includes emergency physicians,
registered nurses and paramedics. Adjunct faculty is comprised of professionals
from other inter-related fields.
The course content prepares the student for
advanced emergency medical care under the direct radio/telephone communication
of an emergency physician or within the protocols set forth by their physician
advisor. Field/clinical experience is provided to our students. These clinical
hours are in specialized critical care areas. Additional field experience is
provided through affiliated EMS agencies. Successful course completion includes
certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life
Support, and International Trauma Life Support.
