“I am very excited for them to launch,” said Dr. Kelly Weller, emergency medical services program director at LSC-Montgomery. “We teach students the advanced knowledge and skills they need to become skilled emergency providers. As a field, paramedics are getting more expansive and the required knowledge base is ever growing. It has been fun to watch the position progress as a career and to watch the curriculum progress at LSC-Montgomery.”
The paramedic program at LSC-Montgomery is expanding. There are currently 17 students in the next graduating class. Dr. Weller is looking for students who like to be in charge.
“Students need to be able to jump in,” said Weller. “Patients want you to be frank, honest, quick, competent, caring, and well trained like these graduates. Being a paramedic means you have the unique ability to put on a variety of different hats to meet the needs of the patient and the community. You need to know how to lead your team through a call. It is an exciting career that is growing quickly in our area.”
