Paramedic education program receives national reaccreditation

September 16, 2019

Goshen Hospital received reaccreditation for its emergency medical services – paramedic program (EMS-P). Goshen Hospital’s EMS-P training program is one of only three in north central Indiana to hold national accreditation.

Goshen Hospital has provided training in advanced emergency medical care for more than three decades. The 19-month program combines classroom study and hands-on experience in all areas of emergency medical services. Students complete comprehensive coursework and rigorous training to meet national accreditation standards in advanced emergency medical care.

“This accreditation recognizes our commitment to continuous quality improvement in our education programs,” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer. “We commend our Colleagues for their dedication to deliver exceptional training for this demanding profession.”

Accreditation standards are established by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and 15 nationally recognized professional organizations. The Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoA EMSP) regularly monitors program compliance and reviews training resources, including curriculum, exams and instructors.
