Professional Code of Conduct The Primary purpose of EMS is to respond to persons in need of medical, psychological, and/or social assistance in a compassionate, medically appropriate manner. As extensions of the Physician, Paramedics and EMT’s have a responsibility to respect the medical license under which they are allowed to function. Respectful interaction with allied healthcare providers is vital to the quality of care the patient receives.
Professional Code of Conduct EMS Professionals must recognize and respect the value of teamwork and leadership. The EMS professional must recognize the continuum of education that is characteristic of the science and art of medicine and, therefore, must maintain a personal responsibility for their life-long learning. Because of their position of public trust, EMS professionals are rightly held to an extremely high standard of moral and ethical conduct.
Professional Code of Conduct Students who demonstrate conduct or performance that is contrary to this Professional Code of Conduct may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion from the Program and/or College, and denial of readmission to the Program.
