Advancement opportunities for an emergency medicine paramedic

There will always be a great need for paramedics, as their skills are extremely important when responding to emergencies, natural disasters, and acts of violence. With additional training, education, and experience, some paramedics may advance into an EMS instructor role. Paramedics also can transition into more advanced areas of health care and choose to train as registered nurses or doctors. Those interested in becoming a paramedic can prepare for their future role by taking courses in science, math, anatomy and physiology, and foreign languages.
