EMS Leadership Degree Program

Associate of General Studies Famous Leaders

Leadership is an integral component to the dynamic and evolving field of EMS. From service directors, to street supervisors and field technicians, an intimate understanding of leadership is integral to thesuccess of both individuals and organizations. An organization with great leadership will be more effective, more cost efficient and have better employee morale at all levels, all of which are important components of any successful organization.

As a profession in its relative infancy, the need for skilled and knowledgeable leaders in the EMS field is immense. EMS leaders must deal with not only normal leadership issues such as conflict resolution, leader-follower relationships and fiscal responsibilities, they must also be familiar with laws regarding patient care and billing, appropriate system status management, and how to lead the unique followers that comprise an EMS organization. To be a successful leader in EMS, one must be intimately familiar with current leadership practices and the issues confronting EMS organizations.

Program Overview

The associate of general studies degree program in Leadership (with an EMS emphasis) from CowleyCollege is designed to provide a conceptual framework for individuals to facilitate the implementation of successful leadership practices in EMS organizations. Topics such as leadership styles, organizational leadership and EMS financial management provide a better understanding of the necessary components that form a successful EMS organization, and how individuals at all levels of the organization can be responsible for positive organizational change. One does not need to be a leader in title to affect powerful personal and organizational payoffs.

To better serve the busy professionals that are the target audience of this program, the delivery format of the leadership program has been enhanced to allow participants to obtain all of the program elective requirements online. The course scheduling has also been changed from the traditional 16 week long semester to offering two 8 week courses per semester. Inspirational Leadership Quote
