Medic II is the second of four courses in advanced out-of-hospital emergency medical care leading to the opportunity to sit for the National Registry Examination for Paramedics. This course builds on the foundational knowledge developed in Medic I and covers advanced management of medical and trauma emergencies in the out-of-hospital environment. Much material will be covered rapidly, and emphasis is on organization, internalization, synthesis and application of the basic knowledge of the discipline in this 10-week course. Students demonstrate competency at motor skill performance, and extensive simulation practice is afforded. Students begin field observation with a paramedic ambulance crew and complete an Advanced Cardiac Life Support course.
