This certificate program, based at the University of North Carolina in the School of Medicine, is a continuing education program, and continuing education units will be offered for those who successfully complete the program.
Faculty will include those from the University of North Carolina as well as visiting instructors and adjunct faculty. This program was designed to target EMS and medical disaster professionals who have already completed either curriculum or continuing education academic programs.
The focus and intent is to address more of the complex processes associated with administrative, executive, and operational leaders within the profession of Emergency Services.
The program will draw from those who currently work in Emergency Services providing emergency medical services and medical disaster management, and from others in Public Safety Organizations who may provide EMS or medical disaster services, such as fire departments, hospitals, and other related agencies.
