Why should I get a 4 year BS degree in EHS when I can get my paramedic certification through a fire department or community college?


The UMBC Paramedic Program is designed to not only prepare you as a medical professional in the prehospital environment; it encompasses course work to expose you to finance, management, research, and leadership.  A degree from the UMBC BS paramedic degree program prepares you as a leader in the field of EMS.
