Training paramedics with knowledge and expertise in emergency medical care who can benefit the community
The number of injured and sick people requiring emergency medical services is increasing every year, and the role of paramedics in the medical field is becoming more important every day as emergency medical services become more and more challenging. In the Emergency Medical Technician Course of the Department of Sport and Medical Science, students learn the basics of medicine and emergency medicine and are trained to become specialists who can play an active role in emergency situations where urgent decisions must be made.
Practical training aplenty
Experience in a form close to the actual emergency scene is indispensable for emergency medical technician. In this course, we take a lot of practical training on a daily basis to train emergency medical technician can deal calmly at any time. Instead of simply fulfilling the role given by the teacher as instructed, the training scenario is performed without knowing how the training scenario will proceed, and the injury or illness is caused by the complaints and symptoms of the victim during the training. Students will develop the ability to respond flexibly by accurately grasping the situation of the person and thinking about how to deal with it, or by thinking about the scenario by the students themselves. In addition, we are learning about communication with various people, including hospital training, long-term care training, and new visits to Psychiatry wards.
Emergency medical technicians who treat injured and sick patients are expected to do the same when called for help, even if the location is dangerous and rugged, and to transport the injured and sick safely to the hospital. At all times, EMTs need to have muscular strength and stamina as they carry heavy bags full of materials and equipment, monitors, etc. In this course, students will not only acquire knowledge and skills, but also develop their physical strength continuously from the time of admission to graduation, thereby training paramedics who can truly play an active role in the field.
We train emergency medical technicians who can widely contribute to society.
To become an EMT, students must not only learn the basic knowledge and skills necessary to perform medical treatment and safely transport injured and sick people to the hospital but also pass the national EMT exam and the firefighter employment exam. The course provides students with many learning opportunities and supports their growth in many ways.
Although the four years are packed with hands-on training, the 1st year's foundation is essential. Students will learn the fundamentals of emergency medicine and other specialized fields in the 1st year, in addition to learning the fundamentals of general knowledge. Students will also begin clinical training through simulations to build the fundamental skills required for fieldwork. In the third and fourth years, students will deepen their expertise in lectures on each specialized field and acquire actual emergency medical treatment skills (specific actions) through practical training.
Course requirements of: Department of Orthoptics, Department of Nursing, Department of Radiological Technology, Department of Clinical Laboratory Science, and the Department of Sport and Medical Science - Emergency Medical Technician Course
This is one of the common educational subjects of the three medical faculties on the Itabashi Campus, and it is designed to help students acquire the communication skills necessary for a person before moving on to become a medical professional. Human error, which is a factor in most medical accidents today, is caused by a lack of communication between people. It is the same for EMTs, who need to communicate accurately with injured and sick patients, their families, and emergency medical personnel. In order to do so, even if you think you have conveyed your message, it must be understood by the other party. In this class, students will learn how to interact with others through a variety of role-plays, including ones in which they cannot see the other person's face or infer what they are thinking from their expression, in order to be able to speak with others while keeping the other person in mind.
First Aid Procedures III
Emergency medical technicians must accurately identify and evaluate the condition of the injured or sick person and transport him or her to an appropriate medical facility with the results of the evaluation. During transport, the paramedic must also provide appropriate treatment for the patient. From lectures given by leading physicians working at emergency medical centers, students will learn the basic knowledge, theories, and techniques necessary to practice these basic procedures in emergency medical care. The lectures are given by physicians working at the adjacent Trauma and Resuscitation Center of Teikyo University Hospital. The course is designed to deepen students' understanding of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, which are the basis of specialized fields, with input from physicians with abundant clinical experience. Students will learn the most advanced medical procedures from the paramedics working on the front lines.
First Aid Procedures VIII
Up until their 2nd year, students will learn the fundamental skills necessary to work as emergency medical technicians, including anatomy, physiology, and a comprehension of pathological conditions. Each pathological condition's specific procedures are covered in class lectures, and the techniques are learned through hands-on training. Students who have acquired these fundamental skills and knowledge will enroll in Clinical Practice VIII. In Clinical Practice VIII, students will reconfirm the basic knowledge they have learned up to this point and learn how to accurately identify physical findings and quickly communicate them to others. In addition, the objective is to quickly identify diseases and predict them based on their symptoms. Each group will be able to simulate an accurate disease model and respond to any situation after mastering these skills. At the same time, students will prepare cases for clinical simulations, aiming to be able to flexibly respond to clinical questions in national examinations as well as in actual practice.
In Clinical Training VIII, you will reconfirm the basic knowledge you have learned so far, and learn how to accurately grasp physical findings and quickly convey them to others. Furthermore, we aim to predict the disease from the symptoms and grasp it in a short time. After mastering these, we will simulate an accurate disease model for each group and develop the ability to respond to any situation. At the same time, we are creating cases for clinical simulation, and our goal is to be able to respond flexibly not only to actual sites but also to national examination clinical problems.
Advanced Emergency Medical Treatment I & II
In the final year of the course, students will acquire basic knowledge, theory, and skills as an emergency medical technician and learn how to think in a more clinical manner. Students will specifically learn how to choose a medical facility to transport an injured or ill patient based on an understanding of the patient's condition, the order of priority for first aid treatment, and the criteria for making such decisions, all of which are required in the field, using clinical questions from the emergency medical technician national exam. In addition, students are in charge of explaining some of the questions on the national examinations, and through explaining the questions, they will deepen their understanding of the pathological conditions. The students can also learn the latest information in the clinical field by having a doctor from the adjacent Trauma and Resuscitation Center of Teikyo University Hospital give commentary on the national examination questions.
Smooth communication skills are required to utilize knowledge in the field. Through various practical trainings, you will surely acquire the knowledge gained in the lectures and also acquire the communication skills that are indispensable for Team Medical Care. In the ambulance riding training, you will be dispatched with the fire department ambulance crew who are actually active in the emergency field. Experience real-life situations that cannot be experienced in class and deepen your learning.
Clinical training I / II
It is a practical training that is the basis of activities as a emergency medical technician. Clinical training I begins with off-campus training to learn basic life support. In addition to acquiring knowledge and skills in basic life support, we will create an environment where we can work hard with each other by interacting with colleagues who will study together for four years. After the off-campus training, you will acquire basic knowledge and skills such as how to use a sling and how to use transportation equipment in the training room on campus. In clinical training II, in addition to basic knowledge and skills, you will acquire life-saving measures performed in pre-hospital relief activities and observation and judgment of the injured and sick based on medical grounds. Not only in the training room, but also outdoors and in the arena, you will acquire the ability to detect danger in transportation methods and pre-hospital activities in a more practical manner. In addition, during this period of learning the basics, not only knowledge and skills, but also the growth of the "mind" that helps people and the building of physical strength to help people will be done at the same time.
Clinical training III / IV
Clinical training III is the first half of the 3rd year, and clinical training IV is the second half of the 3rd year. Since the basic emergency services activities in pre-hospital relief have been mastered by the 2nd year, the 3rd year will focus on specific actions (tracheal intubation, airway management using instruments, venous route securing, drug administration, etc.). I will wear it. In clinical training III, once you get away from the activities of the ambulance crew, you will thoroughly learn the technique of specific actions with the aim of reliable medical practice. After the clinical training III is completed, the hospital training is waiting for you, so on the final day of the clinical training III, students will practice to secure an intravenous route. In clinical training IV, emergency services will be conducted using various scenarios with the goal of using the specific actions learned in the previous term in actual field activities. In order to get closer to the site, more training will be done using the on-campus buildings and arenas away from the training room. Among them, the narrow outer stairs and the equipment storage can be used to imagine sites with disabilities, and you can learn not only medical knowledge but also the importance of transportation.
Clinical training V
Learn more practical paramedic activities using the knowledge and skills you have accumulated up to the 3rd year. Up to the 3rd year, we mainly practice typical diseases, but in clinical training V, we aim to be able to deal with diseases in emergencies such as disasters. In addition, in order to deepen the understanding of the disease, the students themselves create a practical training scenario, and the students discuss the points of the disease and activities with each other. Students will deepen their understanding of the disease by creating scenarios, and students will give feedback to develop their teaching ability.
Clinical training VI / VII
Clinical training VI and VII are off-campus training conducted at fire departments and hospitals. Both will be carried out over the two years of the 3rd and 4th year years. As the name suggests, clinical training VI (ambulance riding training) is divided into fire departments of the Tokyo Fire Department during the summer holidays, and under the guidance of the fire department, some of the techniques learned on campus are part of the ambulance. It will be carried out for the injured and sick. In clinical training VII (hospital training), during the summer holidays, we also practiced lifesaving treatment and assessment of pathological conditions at the Trauma and Resuscitation Center of Teikyo University Hospital, and in the west ward (Neuro Surgery ward) on the 10th floor of the same hospital, a nurse. Under the guidance of, we will practice nursing care and transportation methods. In addition, we will conduct practical training at a long-term care facility to learn about the characteristics and communication of the elderly.
