Emory Emergency Medical Services (EEMS) is a professional EMS agency that provides vital medical services, education, and outreach to Emory University and the surrounding community.

In the EMT/AEMT course, students learn life-saving patient care skills through both classroom and clinical experience. The course is approximately nine months in length. It begins in late-August and ends in late-April, following the undergraduate academic calendar. The class will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. and approximately every other Saturday from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. at 1599 Clifton Road on Emory’s Atlanta campus. In addition to classroom hours, students will complete clinical hours with top EMS agencies and hospitals in the metro Atlanta area.

The purpose of our EMT/AEMT course is to staff Emory EMS with highly trained licensed EMTs and advanced EMTs. While this course requires considerable extracurricular work, it can be one of the most rewarding activities during your time at Emory.

Entry into this course is a minimum two-year commitment. This course is open to all incoming and current Emory University undergraduate students. Emory faculty, staff, and graduate students are also welcome and encouraged to apply for the class. Lastly, admission into this program is highly competitive; a waitlist will be maintained if additional slots in the course become available.

Upon successful course completion, graduates must apply for an EMS provider license in the state of Georgia and volunteer for at least one year as an active member of Emory EMS.
