In case of emergency

Injuries, trauma, sudden illness—medical emergencies can happen at any time, in any place. Survival often depends on the initial care the injured or severely ill person receives at the scene.


The Lakeshore Technical College Paramedic Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

Due to the rigorous and highly supervised nature of this hands-on training, lecture, lab and scenario courses are only offered during the day. 

The clinical courses provide some flexibility to the students’ schedules, as the specific hours are not preset and scheduled by the instructors. Students will work directly with their assigned hospital clinical and field clinical sites to schedule shifts. Availability and duration of shifts is determined by the clinical sites. It is each student’s responsibility to complete their hours and competencies before the end of each respective clinical course.
