IHM is committed to producing paramedic graduates that provide execellent patient care. For the last several years, IHM has been pushing the envelope in prehospital education. Our comprehensive paramedic education program is designed to not only meet the needs of the EMS community, but to expand the definition of an entry-level paramedic. The student will be able to participate in challenging clinical experiences and graduate with a solid academic base. The program consists of classroom presentations, hands-on skills labs, scenario simulations, observation and skills application at area hospital and ambulance clinical sites.
