Course Type: Voc/Tech
Students successfully completing EMS Clinical 503 will transition the learned and mastered individual skills from Lab 401 , application of those individual skills to simulated and live scenarios in EMS Lab 402 , and Clinical 501 and begin transitioning into a team leader role under the guidance of an approved preceptor.
A portion of Clinical 503 will include the completion of the student’s clinical capstone requirements as outline in CoA appendix G. During this time students will be expected to act as a team leader executing pt. assessments, treatment plan, individual skills, and pt. destination decisions, with the student preceptor acting as a safety net to the student acting as a team lead.
All learned skills, assessments, and treatments from the entirety of the previous coarse work, can and often will be utilized during EMS clinical 503.
