Student Conduct
The Inver Hills EMS Program expects each student to conduct him/herself in accordance with all Inver Hills Community College policies, applicable laws, EMS professional behavior standards and generally accepted norms of conduct. Code of Conduct regulations apply on all campus property and at all college‐sponsored off‐campus activities including hospital and field clinicals. Behavior which violates professional standards or the Student Code of Conduct will be investigated and may result in discipline up to and including dismissal from the Paramedic Program.

Internships and Clinical Experiences
All students will be required to participate in ambulance internships and other patient care experiences as part of the Paramedic Core Program. Each clinical/internship site will be selected by the program director and faculty based on its ability to provide a positive learning environment and patient care opportunities. Participation in patient care experiences are a priviledge. We are guests at each of the sites. Inver Hills EMS reserves the right to assign students to patient care experience sites and to dismiss a student from such site if violation of IHCC Student Code of Conduct or EMS Student Manual policies and procedures occur. Students may be expected to participate in patient care experiences a considerable distance from the Inver Hills campus. The college will make reasonable effort to place students for internship/clinicals at their preferred location, however this is not always possible.

Criminal Background Checks
In compliance with the MN Dept. of Human Services (DHS) and as a required condition of clinical affiliation, DHS background studies will be conducted on all paramedic core students. In addition, students will be required to complete a background study beyond MN DHS Study.

Each student will be required, as a condition for participation in the clinical experience program, to obtain background checks. The background checks include social security number validation, address history for past 10 years, a felony and misdemeanor criminal history search for the state of Minnesota and all counties outside Minnesota identified by the student’s address history for the last seven years, a national criminal history database search that includes sex offender and child/elder abuse registries, convictions, licensure sanctions, and a search of governmental agencies such as the Office of Inspector General.

Students must have documentation of clearance for botht he DHS study and the other Study in order to participate in the Paramedic Program. There is a cost due at the time of initiating the additional study. Directions for completing this study will be provided to accepted applicants at the time of program orientation. Some sites also require additional criminal background check that may be conducted as well.

Personal Health
Due to the inherent risks involved with EMS and for the benefit of your own health, all Paramedic students are required to maintain personal health insurance for the duration of their enrollment within the program. Accepted applicants will be required to provide physician verification of good health and immunization documentation.

Student Uniform
All students enrolled in EMS courses at Inver Hills Community College are required to wear the approved student uniform as outlined in the EMS Department Uniform Policy during all classes, clinical experiences and department sponsored events.

Driving Record Inquiry
Students enrolled into the Paramedic Program will be asked to submit their driver’s license information to the college at the time of admission and if found to have an ineligible driving record (as defined by the college vehicle use policy) will not be allowed to drive college vehicles.
