Students interested in pursuing a career as a paramedic can now enroll in an associate degree program at Pima Medical Institute’s Las Vegas campus.

Pima Medical has been dedicated to providing its students with the best value in medical career education for more than 47 years, and the Las Vegas Campus has been serving its community for more than a decade.

Students enrolled in this program will learn the skills needed to help save lives and study in the areas of traumatic injury, cardiology, advanced life support and more. The hands-on lab classroom even has a full-size ambulance built right in!

Students beginning the program in semester I do not need to be EMTs to get started. However, they will need to obtain Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification by successfully passing the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification examination at the EMT level before proceeding to semester II. 

Students who can provide evidence of a certificate/diploma from an approved EMT program and hold a current EMT license may be eligible to enter the program in semester II.

“We are excited to offer the Paramedic associate degree program here at the Las Vegas campus,” said Sam Gentile, Las Vegas Campus Director. “The hands-on lab classroom will provide our students with real-world scenarios and an opportunity to experience working as part of a team on the ambulance. It doesn’t get much more real than an actual ambulance in the classroom.”
