The PCP program provides the education and training required to practice as a Primary Care Paramedic.
The program focuses on the skills required to assess and manage patients in a pre-hospital care environment. It delivers a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology to strengthen the decision making and treatment actions required to care for critically ill or injured individuals in a pre-hospital setting.
Current best practices in trauma life-support and treatment guidelines form an experiential course that is led by skilled paramedic field-practitioners and focuses on the development of the learner to attain core-competencies as defined by the Paramedic Association of Canada (PAC).
