CoAEMSP Establishes Program Directors Focus Group
The Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the EMS Professions (CoAEMSP) Board of Directors recently approved the formation of a Program Directors Focus Group (PDFG).
The PDFG is a consultative group offering expertise and valuable input to the CoAEMSP Board of Directors. In doing so, the group offers feedback and perspective to the CoAEMSP Board, committees, and staff, especially relating to day-to-day operational aspects of CAAHEP accredited and CoAEMSP Letter of Review Paramedic programs. Members of the group are volunteers who will meet via web conference on a quarterly basis. The PDFG is not a governing body, does not set policy, and does not participate in accreditation decisions. Rather, the PDFG is a standing focus group providing a conduit of information flow from program directors responsible for operationalizing accreditation processes to the Board of Directors.
Program directors are invited to review the detailed application information and consider applying. The 24-member PDFG seeks program directors from each NASEMSO region, program director experience level, and type of program. For consideration, please return a completed application packet by March 24, 2023.
