Can a foreign student studying in the US become a paramedic aka. Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic (Paramedic)?

I'm a fan of NBC's Chicago Fire show and always wants to become one of the paramedics that saves lives and help people in their line of work. Plus, I think it's really cool to be a EMT or paramedic.

Emergency Medical Technicians Wanted

Are you an Emergency Medical Technician, or someone who wants to help others in need? Check out Highlander Emergency Medical Services, we are a student-based EMS unit thriving to provide UC Riverside students, staff, and faculty a safer and healthier space to study, work, and entertain.

Collegiate EMS is an integral part of the EMS system in many parts of the country. They are made of students who are licensed as a pre-hospital provider, and they are usually the first on the scene if someone needs medical attention within the university perimeter. They also support local fire and EMS agencies as mutual aids during manmade and natural disasters.

Highlander EMS is UCR's own collegiate EMS unit. We work alongside with UCR Police, Office of Emergency Management, and School of Medicine to provide medical aids in UCR events (you guys might've seen us in action during Block Party, Bon Fire, and Winter Soulstice before the pandemic). Right now, our members are contributing their time and effort supporting UCR's COVID-19 Vaccination clinic.

Our eventual goal is to become a 24/7 service available to the UCR campus and reduce the response time when a medical emergency happens.

Whether you are currently a licensed provider or someone who's interested in pre-hospital medicine, check us out at www.highlanderems.com

Sounds exciting?? We are currently recruiting both EMTs and EMT prospective for Spring 2021!! Help us to make a difference in our community!!

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

I got a Conditional Apprentice Emergency Medical Technician offer!!

I'm so excited! I've wanted to be a paramedic for ages so I'm ecstatic I'm finally about to start the first stage!

It's a Conditional offer as I have to gain a C1 license first which I'm hoping I can do in about a month.

Please can anyone just give me a bit more of an insight into the job. Their personal opinion, (even if you hate it) the highs/lows. The work/home life balance. Progression available etc. Il be based in essex if that makes a difference.

I dont have a medical background so any book recommendations or anything that I can read/do before the training starts would be really appreciated.

Thanks all.

[IWantOut] 21M Emergency Medical Technician Singapore -> Australia

Hey there,

So I'm currently serving National Service and I have around a year left. I've been thinking of getting out of Singapore to get a job since its pretty boring and there's almost no work life balance. Also, I feel so out of touch with the conservative mindset regarding human rights and LGBTQ+ stuffs.

Recently I went to Melbourne for a solo trip and I've pretty much fallen in love with the people and the liberal culture there. I met a couple of people that are working in Aus and NZ and they shared with me the ups and down of moving out which really opened up a whole new perspective on living abroad and building a career for me.

I feel like I need a clean break from studying and focus on building my career instead.

I was thinking of getting a WHV to get a job that focuses on Biotech/Med field or QC/QA since I have a Diploma in Biomedical Engineering with Merit. However I feel that the Diploma will hinder the jobs that I want.

I have a Pharmacy Technician & EMT certificate but I have no clue if it will be recognized since the healthcare system is way different & strict with the certification and stuffs.

I also have a couple years of work experience from working in Retail and a 3 months internship for a R&D company in relation to Biomedical Devices.

Was thinking of working up to the end of the WHV, or if possible get sponsored by the company to get a temporary work visa. If all fails, I'll just return back to Singapore to get a degree.

Would love to get some perspective or views on this situation. Thanks!
