Paramedic Program

The University of Vermont Health Network - Elizabethtown Community Hospital Paramedic Program is an intensive training program which blends an on-line learning environment, classroom sessions, lab sessions, and clinical experience. The 16-month, 1100-hour program, has classes beginning in September each year.

Hands-on Experience and Classrooms Close to Home

Hands-on clinical training is offered at 15 regional health care organizations and 28 EMS agencies across Northern New York and Vermont. Classrooms locations in Lewis, Malone, and Queensbury and online coursework make it easier for students from Clinton, Essex, Franklin, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington counties to learn closer to home. Tuition and fees for the 2020-2021 program are approximately $6,000 and scholarships are available. 

New this year!!! A Cadaver anatomy and procedures lab was hosted for the paramedic students and for EMS providers around the region.  This lab allowed our students the unique opportunity to learn in a way you cannot from books or manikins.
