EMT - Paramedic Program - Clinical Requirements

All students must submit to the Health Sciences office all documentation required for clinical attendance (refer to the checklist for which documents need to be originals or copies). Your file must be complete in order to attend clinical. Students should keep a copy of any record submitted; copies will NOT be provided by the office, nor will your file or documents be returned to you upon completion of the program. Clinical sites and potential employers may request copies of your medical records for their files, so it is important that the student keep a copy of all documentation turned into this office. (All documentation becomes the property of Spokane Community College's Health and Environmental Sciences division and will not be returned, copied, or shared with another party.)

If you have questions or concerns, please stop by, call, or email us. We are here to help you, and if we cannot do so then we will get you connected with someone who can!
