Program Goals

CCEMTP was designed in response to the growing need for qualified specialists in the area of critical care inter-facility transfer. It helps to prepare paramedics and nurses to serve with competence and confidence in meeting the needs of critical care patients undergoing interfacility transports. While traditional paramedic education programs teach essential skills and provide a knowledge base for the management of patients in the pre-hospital setting, these training programs frequently do not teach the skills and knowledge necessary to manage critical patients between hospitals, specialty referral centers, and extended care facilities. The CCEMTP program will assist the clinician in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high-risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTP is 'post graduate education' for the paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and level of care in inter-facility transport.


The Critical Care Transport Program was designed by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. Critical patients that must transported between facilities require a different level of care from hospital or emergency field patients.
