Birmingham - Emergency Medical Technician

Help save lives in a growing career field.

Emergency Medical Technician Overview

People's lives often depend on the quick response and competent care of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. Incidents as varied as automobile accidents, heart attacks, slips and falls, childbirth, and gunshot wounds require immediate medical attention. EMTs and paramedics provide this vital service as they care for and transport the sick or injured to a medical facility.

EMTs and paramedics who have advanced education and certifications should enjoy the most favorable job prospects as clients and patients demand higher levels of care before arriving at the hospital.

Can you work well under pressure?

Keeping alert and focused during an emergency is key to success in this career field.

A career as an emergency medical technician could be right for you if you:

  • Are interested in the human body and patient care
  • Have good communications and people skills
  • Work well under pressure
  • Deal well with emotional or difficult situations
  • Are physically strong and healthy
  • Can move quickly while being gentle and deliberate

The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location.
