About the Program
The Bachelor of Science in Emergency Medical Care (BSEMC) will prepare you to work in the hospital and healthcare industry as an Advanced Paramedic/Emergency Medical Technologist, providing support and assistance primarily to patients out-of-hospital with medical or trauma emergencies. It will provide in-depth knowledge of emergency medical response, emergency preparedness and management, disaster planning and response, and illness and injury prevention.
Field experience is an integrated component of the curriculum. There are four clinical practice courses in the program as part of clinical exposure and an internship conducted in affiliated hospitals in the UAE. Pre-hospital experience is an essential element of clinical training to enable you to develop and gain the required emergency care skills, reinforce theoretical knowledge through real clinical case scenarios, and develop a high level of professionalism through exposure to healthcare settings.
The program is supported by simulation labs equipped with high-fidelity ICU and trauma manikins, invasive and non-invasive ventilators, and task trainers for various procedures such as airway management, vascular access, etc. As well as clinical knowledge and skills, the program provides the capabilities required to become a researcher and leader in specific areas of interest.
