Emergency Medical Sciences


At Hinds Community College, our Emergency Medical Services program comes in two tracks:  EMT Course and Paramedic Program. While they are specialized, each program will offer you the skills and experience you need to begin your career as an emergency medical technician or paramedic.

Emergency medical technicians and paramedics provide assessment, care, and transport to patients in and out of the hospital setting. EMTs and Paramedics function under physician medical direction and serve our communities, working for local ambulance services, paid and volunteer fire departments, hospitals, and other health care organizations.

We offer both an EMT course and a Paramedic Program.
