Emergency Medical Services is a Health Science profession recognized by the American Medical Association. A competent member of this profession will recognize, assess, and manage medical emergencies under the direction of a physician and primarily provide pre-hospital emergency care to acutely ill patients by ambulance service and secondarily in other appropriate settings (such as hospitals). Midland College offers an associate degree (2 years) or individualized courses preparing students to write the National Registry of EMT’s for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) after the first eight (8) semester hours and the National Registry of EMT’s exam for Paramedic after completion of EMT training and an additional 35 semester hours (12 months) of course work.

The Midland College Paramedic program has been awarded initial accreditation by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoA EMSP) through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).

The degree and certificate in this field offered by Midland College and the courses needed to achieve these credentials are presented in the following sections.
