MetroAtlanta Employees Complete Critical Intensive Care Paramedic Training
Ten MetroAtlanta employees selected to attend the Cleveland Clinic EMS Academy's Critical Intensive Care Paramedic (CICP) program have successfully completed their training. The CICP curriculum provides medics with the education, knowledge and skill-sets required to deliver quality care to critically ill patients. The classroom component consisted of 88 hours of lecture and lab work. The medics were not only instructed on the "why and when," but practiced the "how" to initiate the development of critical thinking at the advanced level. A number of guest speakers, consisting of local healthcare experts in a variety of fields, presented to the class throughout the three month program. Congratulations to graduates Dorian Brown, Brad Burkett, Kimberly Casimier, Chris Davis, Nick Eisele, Jeff Groom, Jennifer Johnson, Brad Jones, Flora Rhodes and Joecita Williams for successfully completing the program.
