The PCC Difference
Mike White is a paramedic but you won’t see him riding in an ambulance. Instead, you’ll find him working in the emergency room at Parkview Medical Center.
The 2020 PCC graduate earned his paramedic certificate in the Emergency Medical Services program. He now is completing his associate degree while he works at the hospital, providing an additional resource for Parkview and its patients.
“I feel that being a paramedic in the emergency department is an amazing opportunity,” said White. “You can build really good relationships with the nurses and physicians. One reason I decided to get my paramedic certificate was so I could better understand what we actually do for our patients. It helped me to be a better clinician and in turn improve patient outcomes.”
