This course covers an EMT level review of cardiology, pulmonology, and neurology, with an emphasis on Medical Terminology.  Whether you are taking the UCLA EMT course, deciding if the EMT path is right for you, or taking an EMT course across the country, the EMT Prep class will provide you insights and knowledge into the EMS field.

During this course, students will spend twice the amount of time on these topics as in the EMT program. In addition, the student will use text, articles, videos, and live online class sessions to enforce these topic areas and knowledge. This course will also introduce you to the study strategies we find most successful for UCLA EMT students.

This course starts with an online orientation and introductory session.  Students will then be expected to complete approximately 4 hours of reading. In addition, homework and quizzes will be assigned.  Four live online sessions, utilizing Zoom, will be conducted in which highlights of the course material are discussed.

Students will also get to meet their future EMT instructors and fellow students.
