        Malcolm X College - Paramedic Program

                             Frequently Asked Questions:

How many candidates typically apply for the MXC program?
We usually have at least two applicants for each class “seat”.

I know qualified candidates need to be interviewed, who are the interviewers and how to they make
The interviews are conducted by the admissions committee which is made up of representatives of:
Malcolm X College; Chicago Resource Hospitals; Chicago Fire Department; and a Field Paramedic.
The committee will ask questions of the candidate that address, and may not be limited to: Qualities
such as motivation, maturity, academic capabilities; and provide a BLS patient scenario for the
applicant to manage. The admission committee will look at all components of the application, including
academic history, recommendations, personal statement, test scores and work history.

Is there any advantage to taking the EMT class at Malcolm X College?
Yes. Students who are already enrolled at Malcolm X College have their academic history readily
available to the committee and do not need to make application to the college. Students from MXC,
only, are allowed to sit for an interview with a state license “pending.”

How much ambulance ride time do I need?
The committee strongly recommends 500 hours of ambulance experience as an
EMT-Basic by the start of the program (fall semester). Documented ambulance experience is not
required at the time of interview, however given the competitive application process, field experience
as an EMT will provide an advantage for the candidate.

Are there any science prerequisites?
Yes. The applicant must have a passing grade of “C” or higher in BIO 116, Anatomy & Physiology
(A&P), or a higher level A&P course, such as Biology 226, will be acceptable. If Biology A&P was
taken at another college (passing grade of “C” or better), you will need to request official transcripts be
sent or handed over to the Office of the Registrar, include a copy of the transcript with your completed
application packet.

What is acceptable score on the entrance exams?
The applicant typically must achieve a score of 75% on the EMT entrance test (multiple choice) to be
eligible for interview. The applicant also must demonstrate reading and math skills at the college level.
We are offering an EMT-B Refresher Course (not mandatory) prior to Paramedic Program Entrance

When are applications available and when are they supposed to be completed?
Applications are available upon request. They can be mailed out, picked up from the EMS Office
(Rm.2621), or emailed to you. The deadline for submitting completed applications is clearly identified
within the application packet. Completed applications are due in the EMS Office April 23, 2010.
