“My experience visiting the UCLA Center For Prehospital Care confirmed my interest in the program. During my visit, I received a tour of the classrooms and simulation labs, I sat in on a lecture and was impressed by the hands-on teaching style. The students were engaged, and it was clear that they would graduate with an enriching and quality education. The UCLA Paramedic Program's "Test drive the program" confirmed the high standards of this institute.”
