UW Health's paramedic course offers a robust education and training experience. Students earn ACLS and PALS certification and receive significant instruction in difficult airway and neonatal rescue skills. Classroom learning occurs at our Emergency Education Center in Madison. Students participate in labs and clinical observation and benefit from simulation scenarios and hands-on experience. The course takes students to more than 20 clinical settings, both within UW Health and at Madison-area partner organizations. At $4,610, our paramedic training fee is lower than most paramedic courses across the country and includes required textbooks.
