Emergency Medical Services professionals with college degrees can advance their careers in the healthcare career fields.

Getting Your Degree

Your Paramedic education and training counts toward the AS in EMS. That means that you are already part of the way there. HCI College’s Paramedic program is 45 college credits. The remaining 15 college credits needed for the associate of science in Emergency Medical Services degree are general education courses. As a Paramedic, you are already more than halfway toward completing your college degree!

The general education courses that you need to finish the degree cover the “soft skills” that are important for all professionals. Paramedics use math on a regular basis when they administer IVs or medications. Good communication skills are important as well. As a Paramedic, you lead other Paramedics and EMTs in the field and talk to patients. The psychology course will help you to understand how people think and communicate. History classes provide a solid foundation for understanding the past as it relates to the present.
