Medical Education

One of NAEMT’s core values is the belief that professional education, national education standards and EMS research are essential to the consistent delivery of high quality, evidence-based medical care. This belief is the foundation upon which our education programs are built.

NAEMT addresses the medical care needs of EMS agencies and their personnel through globally recognized education courses. NAEMT courses provide high-quality, evidence-based education that prepares EMS practitioners to assess and treat a wide variety of medical conditions, face the many challenges that come with working in the field, and stay safe on the job. NAEMT courses are offered in a variety of formats – in-person, online, hybrid, and course refreshers. 

NAEMT works in partnership with leading national organizations and agencies to provide evidence-based, medically appropriate course content, including:

  • American Geriatrics Society
  • American Academy of Pediatrics
  • National Association of EMS Physicians

All NAEMT courses for EMS and other out-of-hospital practitioners are approved for continuing education credit by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). Proceeds from NAEMT education programs help support the advancement of the EMS profession through advocacy, education, and research.
