Tufts offers a state-approved course in prehospital emergency care every semester, including the summer session. Successful completion of the course allows participants to sit for the Massachusetts state certifying examination for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). The course provides a comprehensive overview for managing medical, trauma and behavioral emergencies through lectures and practical skills sessions. TEMS members work as teaching assistants (TAs) in this course as students learn the hands-on skills required for the psychomotor portion of the national EMT certification exam. If you are a current Tufts student interested in becoming an EMT, learn more about the course.
