The Emergency Medical Services Program has been discontinued effective Fall 2020. New students will not be accepted.

HCC's Emergency Medical Services Program provides students with several areas of study and experience through lecture, laboratory, clinical experience, and field experience. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge and skills needed to assist individuals in emergency situations. General education courses provide students with the necessary scientific and social background needed to function as an effective healthcare provider. For students who are currently licensed at the EMT-I level, HCC also offers a one-year certificate program that allows them to “bridge” to paramedics.
