WGREEC Advisory Committee

EEC Advisory Committee


The purpose of the Emergency Education Coalition (EEC) advisory committee is to provide a continuous evaluation of the paramedic program. The evaluation includes a continuing and systematic process with internal and external curriculum validation in consultation with employers, faculty, preceptors, students, graduates, public and private sector representatives.


Other dimensions of the program may merit consideration such as the admission criteria and process, the curriculum design, and the purpose and productivity of an advisory committee.
