Paramedic Consortium History

The Creighton University - Advanced Medical Transport of Central Illinois Paramedic Consortium (CUAMT) was organized by Creighton University EMS Education, Omaha, Nebraska and Advanced Medical Transport of Central Illinois to better serve the educational needs of the central Illinois area. Advanced Medical Transport's leadership team approached Creighton University with a proposal to develop this program in order to enrich our educational offerings with an exceptional, University sponsored paramedic education program.
