COVID-19 Updates

Currently Denver Health Paramedics - EMS Education has moved all of its current EMT and Paramedic programs online. Our goal is to get our students to the finish line in their educational endeavors! We are still accepting applications for our Summer EMT courses in anticipation that the social distancing restrictions may be modified by the course start dates of May 26th. We are meeting frequently with all stakeholders to ensure that we are keeping the safety of our staff and students in mind during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your patience and understanding!  

These courses will begin on time and potentially all lectures may be held via an online platform until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. If you are in need of a BLS for Healthcare Provider certification we will provide this as a part of the class UNLESS restrictions are lifted and you are able to attend an in person class prior to the start of the course. For the required vaccinations, if you are not able to get them prior to class starting because of COVID-19 restrictions, we will still accept you into the course. Once we are cleared to resume clinical time, you will be required to have the vaccinations prior to completing any them. Please complete My Clinical Exchange as best you can with the information your currently have.
