EG 208 - EMT Paramedic Ambulance Field Internship

Credit Hours: 7

Students will ride with assigned preceptors on designated field units. Two phases will enable the student to progress from observation, to skills performance, to the role of team leader. Students will be expected to integrate history taking, physical exam, cognitive knowledge and skills performance into the total management of the patient. Written documentation and verbal communication by radio/phone directly with hospital staff will be a part of the field internship. Students will be required to submit four (4) written detailed summary patient reports on patients who required advanced level treatment, whom they assessed, treated and transported. These will be evaluated and assigned a numerical value. A minimum of five (5) Advanced Life Support (ALS) calls must be completed. Successful completion of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification is required.  The student will also be required to successfully complete two (2) exit megacode scenarios in the lab, a comprehensive final written examination as well as the NYS mandated final practical skills examination. The student’s performance on each ALS call will be documented with a formative evaluation. The end of the internship will be documented with a summative evaluation by the field preceptor. Successful completion of the required hours and verification of the student’s competency to function as an entry-level paramedic as submitted by the field preceptor and will be given primary consideration, as students must be recommended by the lead instructor to the program medical director for final NYS paramedic certification.
