Emergency Medical Service

The Emergency Medical Services Program (EMMS) is the first BSc program in the Kingdom that was initiated to qualify National Saudi Paramedics according to the International High Standard. The program seeks to fill the wide gap of this especially in relation to other emergency healthcare manpower and promote a state-of-art model for emergency medical services education. Most of EMS programs around the world follow traditional curriculum and a few of them use case-based curricula.

Although problem-based learning is well established, the method of teaching in the medical field is fairly new in EMS programs. Our college, along with several other worldwide programs has adapted this method of teaching in EMS programs. The curriculum is community-oriented and uses teaching and learning strategies that are student-centered.

The College adopted (with modifications) the EMS program of Flinders University in Australia with the intention of promoting the standards of EMS at national and international levels. The college avails itself of educational potentials in the existing health faculties in NGHA to train students properly and for access to high-quality research. This ensures cost-effective and efficient use of national resources to promote research that enhances the standard of health care provided to the citizens of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.


After completing the required didactic and practical courses, there is a mandatory one-year internship, during which the students will complete directed health program to support, develop, or enhance his role as a public safety and health care provider. A scholarly, written presentation will be completed to synthesize, analyze, and develop solutions to a pre-hospital health care issue or problem. The site of the internship will be within KAMC and other hospitals. Ambulatory experience and ride along are maintained with Saudi Red Crescent Authority.
