Paramedic (formerly Primary Care Paramedic)
As a primary care paramedic, I provide pre-hospital emergency patient care to those who call 911. Emergencies require me to do basic and advanced life support and assessment, first aid, CPR, defibrillation, symptom relief drug administration and transportation to the hospital setting.
The biggest thing I learned at Georgian was professionalism. I now understand the importance of being punctual, a clean uniform, good hygiene, how to provide care for my patients even when I’m having a bad day.
The faculty are not only great educators, but working paramedics who have years of experience – which goes a long way when teaching both the academic side and hands-on side of paramedicine. Small class sizes meant I really got to know my professors through one-on-one time. Constant feedback meant I always knew where I needed to improve, which made me a much better student.
The staff at Georgian truly want you to succeed and push you to always be better, which, for me, helped with my patient care and confidence
