The Denver Health Paramedic Division - EMS Education is excited to offer Community Paramedic. The Denver Health Paramedic Division is part of an extraordinary Level I Trauma Center and safety net hospital system that allows us to provide this unique opportunity. As an EMS system we have an opportunity like no other agency in Colorado. We provide a rapid and intensive course of instruction to prepare experienced paramedics to pass community paramedic certification tests and prepare to operate in the primary care/preventative environment. Coursework includes instruction in interdisciplinary teams, resource identification and utilization, patient education skills, frequent EMS user identification and management, chronic disease pathophysiology and management, prescription medication review, psychiatry, diagnostic tests and lab interpretation, medical adjuncts, and pediatrics.
The 16-hour classroom lesson program is paired with clinical rotation time to ensure provider comfort and readiness before taking nationally recognized certification tests and entering into this exciting new branch of EMS. We also have the content experts to help consult and provide you with the tools you need to bring this program to your agency.
Requirements: Certified as a paramedic in good standing with two years of experience. A letter of recommendation from your medical director.
Course fee is $399.00. This includes the course and clinical time if you decide to fulfill your clinical requirements through the Denver Health Medical Center system.
Note: Denver Health Paramedics - EMS Education does not provide the Community Paramedic exam that is offered through the IBSC. The student will be responsible for making those arrangements upon successful completion of our course.
Denver Health Paramedics - EMS Education is a recognized Colorado State Training Center and will issue 16 CEUs for this course.
It is not required but we highly recommend attending an AMLS course prior to taking the Community Paramedic Course. For our upcoming offerings in AMLS please click here.
