Prepare for leadership roles with this EMS master’s degree concentration

Emergency medical services (EMS) is the practice of providing acute medical care to people outside of a hospital setting. EMS professionals, such as paramedics or EMS administrators, organize, prepare for and provide emergency health care in critical situations.

This program emphasizes the present-day objectives of emergency medical care, including mobile health care delivery and community paramedicine. Throughout this program, you’ll learn how to implement solutions and strategies to improve the patient care experience in mobile integrated health care and design emergency medical systems that better serve your community. Upon graduation, you’ll be in a position to compete for leadership employment opportunities in public, private and nonprofit EMS agencies or explore other opportunities in hospitals and behavioral and social service agencies.

Is this program similar to a master’s in paramedicine?

 

While this master’s degree offers courses in paramedicine through the EMS concentration, coursework also features general public safety leadership and administration teachings. For this reason, this program isn’t similar to a master’s solely focusing on paramedicine.

Who’s a good candidate for this EMS master’s degree concentration?

 

This online EMS master’s degree concentration is ideal for students interested in entrepreneurial and leadership roles in emergency care systems, such as administering emergency teams and organizations within mobile integrated health care.

It’s important to note that this program doesn’t offer training to become a paramedic and is designed for students who have existing experience within the field.

Will my diploma say ‘online’?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.”
