Community education is an important part of TEMS services. Each semester, TEMS assists the Emergency Medical Care class offered at Tufts. Conducted through the Department of Physical Education, the class is held on campus and listed as PE 131, Emergency Care. For more information, please read the PE 131 class description on SIS. You must be a Tufts student to enroll in the course. Please note that there is a lab fee for this course listed on SIS.
In the class, students are trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, trauma management, medical emergency management, patient stabilization, motor vehicle extrication, and more! Students will receive an AHA BLS CPR certification. At the end of the class, students are given the opportunity to take the Commonwealth of Massachusetts EMT certification exam. Please note that there are additional fees for taking the state examinations which are to be covered by the candidate.
You do NOT need to have taken the EMT class at Tufts to apply to TEMS. TEMS members are students from many diverse majors and are interested in providing emergency medical care services to the Tufts community.
