Hill College EMS Professions Receives Accreditation

10.09.13


HILLSBORO – The Hill College EMS Professions program recently received its CAAHEP accreditation. Only 31% of paramedic education programs are accredited.

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) is the largest programmatic accreditor in the allied health sciences field. Currently, the only nationally recognized accreditation available for EMS education is through CAAHEP’s Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

“We have been working hard towards accreditation to help the EMS Profession, and are thrilled to have this in hand,” EMS Professions Program Coordinator Diedra Blankenship said. “It will benefit our students, the college and the EMS Profession itself. We will continue to strive to raise the bar and produce some of the elite healthcare providers in the field today.”
