WELCOME! This web page was developed by current SPFD Paramedic students to help answer common questions about Paramedic training at Inver Hills Community College.

time commitment
TIME COMMITMENT

Contrary to popular opinion, there is a tremendous time commitment. Class time amounts to approx. 11 to 12 hrs of lecture per week, with an estimated 2 hrs of study time per 1 hr of lecture.

slide4

TIME COMMMITMENTThere are 8 hrs of lab time each week, and approx. 5 hrs of clinical each week. Finally, there are the ride-alongs, which you will ride a minimum of 320 hrs for the school year or roughly 10-12 hrs per week. Total time commitment is approx. 50 to 56 hrs per week.

fisdap
FISDAP

Field Internship System Data Acquisition Project, a fancy name for entering what you did on your ride-along. Actually, it is a project that tracks the “experimental learning” that occurs during ambulance shift ride-alongs.

fisdap8
Upon completion of your runs, you record patient information, type of call, interventions used, treatment administered, mode of transportation, and what hospital you transported the patient to. FISDAP
fisdap9
The run data information is entered onto a computer program that will compile the data into a bank of information for research purposes. FISDAP
fisdap10
For application as a paramedic student FISDAP also tracks individual runs, which leads to tracking skills, producing scores and this information is averaged into the student’s final grade for the Field Internship course.FISDAP
clinicals
CLINICALS

Clinicals are used to involve the student in practical hands on application of the skills learned in the classroom setting. The hospitals provide a controlled environment where students are supervised by hospital personnel or the clinical instructor.

slide13

CLINICALSStudents are able to sharpen their patient assessment skills,physical exam skills,and observation skills by interacting with real patients. You’ll spend about 200 hours in clinical rotations during the school year perfecting such skills as:I.V’s,administering medications, and endotracheal intubations.

slide14

CLINICALSYou’ll also be learning to assess a wide variety of medical problems including: cardiac problems, respiratory distress, psychiatric problems, obstetrics, trauma, and any other medical conditions you may see while at your clinical site. This is a great opportunity for the Paramedic students to gain knowledge

ride alongs
RIDE-ALONGS

The ride-along program is basically “on-the-job training”. SPF students are assigned Paramedic captains as our mentors. It is similar to working as an EMT; however, you will be applying your new Paramedic skills.

RIDE-ALONGS

You’ll learn how to interview patients, call in radio reports, write run reports, start IVs and perform other paramedic skills.

The mentors are willing to answer questions and teach us the practical skills they have learned from years of experience on the streets.RIDE-ALONGS
ride alongs18
This hands on approach is a very effective way of learning. The scheduling of your ride-along hours, 80hrs each quarter, is totally up to you! This flexibility allows more control of your schedule.RIDE-ALONGS
slide19

JUST AS LIVE TRAINING BURNS HELPED YOU MASTER THE TECHNIQUES NEEDED FOR FIREFIGHTING, RIDE-ALONGS AND HOSPITAL CLINICALS HELP YOU MASTER THE TECHNIQUES YOU’LL NEED AS A PARAMEDIC.

slide21
SKILLS LABThere are three skill labs, Field skills, Shock and Trauma lab skills, and Medical/Pharmacological Interventions lab skills.
slide23

SKILLS LABIn Field Skills lab, you learn how to start IVs on a rubber arm (and on each other), intubate Fred the Head, start IV drips and do drug calculations. The experience grows as your skills get better and you practice them during mock scenarios. The class takes place in the ambulance, simulating all aspects of a run from dispatch to the final outcome.

slide25

FIELD SKILLS LABIn the shock and trauma lab you concentrate on the management of the patient in shock. Whether it be from trauma (falls, MVAs, stabbings, shootings etc…) or from extreme temperatures. Basics, such as rapid extrication, long and short boarding, c-spine care, and splinting are covered.

slide26

FIELD SKILLS LABThe med/pharm lab is concerned with the respiratory and cardiac assessment and management. Skills learned include operation of the monitor/defibrillators and pulse oximeter. You also learn how to operate the equipment by running mock scenarios of respiratory and cardiac emergencies.

slide27

BOOKSYou will receive a voucher from St. Paul Fire for the purchasing of your school books. If you snooze, you loose, so get your books before the vouchers are pulled (approx 6 to 8 weeks after the start of classes). Books total approx $300.00 to $350.00

slide31
BOOKSThe bookstore also sales gifts, cards, snacks, watches, planners, t-shirts, sweat shirts, batteries, and CD-ROMs, to name a few.
slide33

FREE..FREE..FREEOpen computer lab is for all IHCC students. It is located on the first floor of the library building. You can type assignments, access school supplied e-mail (yes, you get e-mail), search the internet, and input FISDAP data.

slide34

FALL CURRICULUM EHS 2235 & 2236 (lab) Medical Emergencies/Pharmacological Interventions IStudy of adult respiratory and cardiovascular emergencies and their pharmacological interventions. The lab covers basics of EKG monitoring.

slide35

FALL CURRICULUMEHS 2231 PharmacologyThe study of medications and their specific uses, administration techniques, and routes and dosage calculations.

slide36

FALL CURRICULUMEHS 2233 & 2234 (lab) Shock and TraumaCourse focuses on, the pathophysiology of shock and the effects of traumatic injuries on the human body. Lab will focus on patient care in traumatic situations.

slide37
