Fall 2023-Spring 2024 EMS Education Program Course Application Form

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 Emory EMS Education Program course, students will learn how to become Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Advanced EMTs (AEMTs) through classroom, lab, and clinical experiences. The EMS Education Program course consists of two (2) seperate classes, and each follows the undergraduate academic calendar. The EMT curriculum is taught approximately from August-January and the AEMT curriculum from Februrary-April. 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 Emory EMS Education Program 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.
