NC State Emergency Medicine Program

NC State Emergency Medicine Program The Emergency Medicine Program at North Carolina State University strives to be a program of excellence that spearheads the forward progression of the prehospital profession through contributions to research, education, and compassionate patient care.
(2)

Emergency Medicine courses equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful on North Carolina Office of EMS and/or the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician exams. Successful completion of these exams will result in state or national certification that will facilitate the student's employment opportunities in service to the community and enhance competitiveness for graduate programs. Students should expect to learn and apply foundational or fundamental aspects of the provision of emergency medical care to the acutely ill or injured patient. All courses offer clinical internship components that allow students to pair with active physicians, nurses, and paramedics to further facilitate excellence in prehospital patient care. Additional time and fees are required for certification. If you have questions, please contact the Emergency Medicine Program Coordinator, Gin Renkiewicz at [email protected]

Mission: The mission of the NC State University Emergency Medicine program is to produce confident, competent, entry-level EMS providers by upholding the leading evidence-based practices and by inspiring our students to excellence in patient care through quality education. Additionally, the Emergency Medicine program will serve the state of North Carolina and beyond as a leader in the Emergency Medicine profession and by fostering a passion and involvement for prehospital research.

In the interest of this family's privacy, allow me to ask for a cryptic request:

We have a faculty member whose son is sick and in the hospital. They are starting a police/fire/ems patch quilt for him as he continues his treatment and recovery. If you could, please send me your department's patch so that we can give it to them for their son.

You can mail them to the following address or of you're local to the Raleigh or Fayetteville areas, I'll come pick them up.

These are the unsung and often unnoticed men and women of the Emergency Services profession, who may never know what happens when those lines disconnect. We are so thankful that they are there, answering the calls, gathering the information to help us get there and to help keep us safe. 911 telecommunicators save lives too.

I've got to make a special post for the program's own Jonathan Murphy who graduated with a Master of Science in Physiology this past weekend. Jonathan started the paramedic program his senior year of undergrad and finished during his first year of graduate school. This past year, while completing his graduate degree, he worked part time for Sara and I as a skills instructor and continues to be an invaluable member of our instructional team. He has also served as a part-time paramedic this year and will begin full-time employment with Durham EMS as a paramedic later this month. He is exceptionally bright and a true asset to any team. I was fortunate to teach his Advanced EMT course and almost all of his paramedic classes. I got to watch him grow into this business and I couldn't be more proud of the paramedic and instructor that he has become. Jonathan, you will go on to do a great many things and I can only be thankful for being lucky enough to be a part of your journey. I am so proud of you. ~Ginny

Please keep Pineville Fire Department, Central Piedmont Community College, and Richard's family in your thoughts and prayers as they endure this tragedy. We are so thankful for firefighters and EMTs like this one who bravely gave his life in the service of others.

As we are all just finding out the identity of the fallen firefighter, Richard Sheltra of the Pineville Fire Department. Richard lost his young life last night while doing what he loved, fighting fire and helping others. Richard was a dedicated firefighter, prospective EMT, and a member of the Central Piedmont Community College family. Please keep his family, his friends, his fellow firefighters, and fellow students in your thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace brother.

Tonight, our hearts are heavy as we say goodbye to our dear friend and Advisory Committee Chair Sandy Parkinson who passed away today. Sandy was involved in EMS for over 40 years and was a strong supporter of university-based EMS programs, particularly his alma mater, Western Carolina University. He was a wonderful person with an exceedingly good heart. We love you Sandy and we'll always be better for having had your influence in our lives. ❤

We need a logo for the Emergency Medicine program so we’re having a logo contest! We want YOU to create our logo to be used on all official program documentation and to be displayed on patches and uniform shirts! An emergency medicine patch says a lot about an agency or program and it is important to the identity and mission of the department. Patches are steeped in meaning, tradition, and can even identify what the unit or department is all about.
The winner will go down in history as the designer of the Emergency Medicine Program’s patch and will receive a free patch once they are ordered and have been received.
Please read the attached contest rules! All submissions are due by April 22, 2016 and then we will compile them and let YOU vote for the winner! The winning patch will be unveiled during EMS Week (May 15-21). We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Another officer has been killed. That makes 13 law enforcement officers (LEOs) that have been slain so far this year and another 12 who have lost their lives in the line of duty. EMS and LEOs work closely together for we are all brothers and we are sickened to continue to see officers being gunned down trying to protect their communities. Cops are people too. They are fathers, brothers, husbands, wives, sisters, daughters, and sons. They have their own children who they are trying to raise to love their fellow man. They care. They have hobbies, they come in all colors and sizes, and their hearts and bodies are devoted to the safety and protection of others- usually those that are completely unknown to them. They are our watchdogs and they keep the watch so that you can feel safe. Please remember to support our LEOs, not just today but everyday.

Here, our paramedic students are running trauma lanes, a care-under-fire exercise. Trauma lanes serve multiple functions: they teach students how to complete skills while trying to maintain concealment; they help to simulate a high-stress environment because of the student's physiological changes, and; they're FUN! ;)
