- Weber State University's Paramedic Program was one of the first accredited paramedic programs in the country as well as the first and oldest paramedic program in Utah.

- On July 1, 2008, Utah began requiring the National Registry Paramedic test in order to be certified and practice in the state.  WSU  Paramedic graduates have a  long standing first attempt pass rate of 97% compared to the national average of 74%.  Weber graduates obtain initial exam scores that nationally in the top 5%.

  • While 97% is remarkable, the paramedic program is striving to achieve 100%.
  • Prior to the National Registry test, in over 30 years, no Weber State student ever failed the Utah Bureau of EMS written exam.     
  • All credits from Weber paramedic program can be applied to an AAS,  AS, BS in Health Administration or BS in Integrated Studies (BIS) degrees.
