Brief Program History

ENMU-Roswell established the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program in 1986 offering EMT Basic and Intermediate classes. In 1988, the program became the first decentralized Paramedic program outside of Albuquerque in conjunction with the University of New Mexico EMS Academy. In 1991, ENMU-Roswell’s EMS program became independent from the EMS Academy, becoming New Mexico’s second New Mexico EMS Bureau EMS Education Program. ENMU-Roswell’s Paramedic Program became a Joint Review Committee for Educational Programs for the EMT-Paramedic accredited program in 1994. ENMU-Roswell was subsequently accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions in 1999, and was reaccredited in 2005 with a full five-year approval. Since the EMS program’s beginning, more than 10,000 students have gone through its programs or classes. This includes over 1,000 First Responder, 4,000 EMT Basic, 1,500 EMT-Intermediate, and 600 Paramedic students who have graduated.
