Representatives from dozens of local law enforcement and emergency service agencies took part this week in a well-attended career fair at Brookhaven College . Bart Scott, college police officer, coordinated the new, two-day event to highlight the different career opportunities available in law enforcement for students.
Members of the Emergency Medical Services Program at Brookhaven College welcomed representatives from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), which is the nation’s largest programmatic accreditor in the health sciences field. CAAHEP is the umbrella organization that manages accreditation for the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the EMS Professions (CoAEMSP). The two-day site visit was part of the program’s application for national accreditation by CoAEMSP, and included an evaluation of all aspects of the college’s EMS program. John Karduck, M.D.; Douglas K. York, director of EMS learning resources center at the University of Iowa hospitals and clinics; and, Karen Franks, accreditation services coordinator for the CAAHEP, were members of the site team and reviewed the strengths and weaknesses in the program and uniformity in teaching and training methods. The visit, September 20-21, also included interviews with current and past students, clinical site coordinators, employers of graduates from the program, faculty members, and the medical and program director. Results of the site visit will be announced in May, 2008, at the annual CAAHEP Conference. For additional information on CAAHEP, go to the following website: http://www.caahep.org.
