EMT Student Projects

Recommended Posts

Greetings, 

Looking to assign an end of class project for EMT students just ahead of graduation, just ahead of NREMT testing processes. 

I'd like to assign them a list of 20 projects to pick from, to simplify this process - and better facilitate grading. 

Suggestions?

Luke presentation ideas?  They could each pick a disease less commonly taught and give a 10-15 minute presentation? Or do groups of 2-3?

 

topics could be:

DKA

Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic Nonketotic Syndrome

Chemotherapy Side Effects

suicidal patient considerations

Developmental considerations (caring for an autistic patient)

I vote for skipping the project and let them study.

I would suggest you take 20 large index cards & write different diseases on each card. You then break them up into teams & have each team give you a presentation on the disease including anatomy & physiology involved, signs & symptoms, treatment, including medications & dosages. For example Angina, Asthma etc.

My class had 15 students so we all picked put of a jar randomly at the start of class a topic that we would do a presentation on at the end of class one day before the final. I got the least mentioned topic of the class (excited delirium) but most of the other topics were mentioned often like sepsis, hypo/hyperglycemia/kalemia/thermia copd and asthma were together. So basically anything the students should have a little understanding of works. I think the projects a great idea. As emts we never stop learning so it's good to include a little more than just what's mandatory.
