Emergency Medical Technician – Paramedic

  • Beginning fall 2021, all Health and Human Services students participating in off-site clinical placements must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Moraine Park Technical College establishes our student vaccination/immunization requirements by aligning with the requirements of the most restrictive health agency utilized for clinical placements.
  • All students participating in clinical must provide documentation of COVID-19 vaccination prior to being allowed at an off-site clinical location. Dependent upon the agency placed, a student may be able to receive a health/religious exemption for the COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Failure to vaccinate may impact the ability to progress in your chosen health program.
  • If you have questions or need a health/religious exemption, please contact Danielle Rhoads. Approval of an MPTC Exception does not ensure that you will receive approval from your assigned clinical/internship site, as their exception standards may differ from those used by MPTC.
  • Please note: Off-site clinical/practicum experiences, vaccine and masking mandates, or course delivery formats may change on short notice.

This program is full-time enrollment only.
