  • NMETC's model is the future of optimal healthcare education delivery models. The focused and intense didactic portion of the course was made user friendly by enabling the student to study in a familiar setting. The practicum was ideal insomuch as it was a precisely focused, directed, and high intensity program working on skills for paramedic practice with an incredible 3:1 ratio of students to instructors. The clinical portion of the course was unsurpassed as the clinical hospital and ride time options allowed for a variety of choices utilizing local and regional options.
