Paramedic Academy

The Paramedic, as a part of the healthcare continuum, provides prompt and professional pre-hospital medical treatment to the sick and injured. Under the direction of a medical control physician, the paramedic becomes an extension of the hospital emergency department, seeking to bring quality care directly into the communities in which they serve. The Paramedic is well trained to fulfill the task of rendering advanced lifesaving techniques and to be a resource for healthcare education and safety within the general public.

The Loyola University Medical Center Paramedic Academy is designed for individuals seeking to become professional healthcare providers. Rigorous academics and clinical applications enable students to gain a unique and in-depth experience in emergency health services. The nationally accredited LUMC Paramedic Academy emphasizes that students demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, critical thinking abilities, good decision-making, and the capacity for making quick and appropriate judgments regarding patient care. Upon successful completion of this program, students are well prepared to assume their duties as patient advocates working always to act on behalf of those in need. Students will master the skills necessary to satisfy the requirements of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and will be eligible for licensure by the State of Illinois Department of Public Health. As professional healthcare providers, Loyola Paramedic graduates are taught to interact effectively with other emergency services personnel, become dynamic leaders, value life-long learning and personal development, serve their communities, and above all, respect and sustain human life.
