Deliver critical emergency care

With this certificate created by OCC and SUNY Upstate, you'll gain hands-on learning by working in simulation labs and completing an internship for credit. 

Critical thinking in emergency situations is key, as is knowing critical math and science principles that relate to care. You'll work on these foundations at OCC then take your learning one step further with SUNY Upstate which has relationships with Adult and Pediatric Level-I Trauma Centers, Comprehensive Stroke Centers, NYS Poison Control Centers, and more.
