Turn your passion for helping others into an exciting career!

What is a Primary Care Paramedic (PCP)

A paramedic is a specialized healthcare professional who is primarily trained to respond to emergency calls for medical help outside of a hospital. Paramedics primarily work in ambulances as part of the emergency response services.

Paramedics may also provide medical care outside of an emergency response environment. For example, they may provide:

  • Care to a patient transferring from one health facility to another (both ground and aeromedical)
  • Care within an emergency department and/or Nursing Station
  • Care in community settings (Community Paramedicine, Palliative Care)
  • Care through private companies on industrial sites or at special events
  • Paramedics can also function as educators and administrators
