Paramedic and EMT Application Process:
All applications must be submitted online at www.phs.jobs for a specific requisition number. To view our current openings and to apply click here (search by Ambulance Job Function). All applications will be reviewed for minimum qualifications and all EMT and paramedic applicants are required to take and pass an EMT-Basic or paramedic exam. After passing the exam, candidates are selected and scheduled for an interview. Candidates who are offered employment will be required to complete and pass a background check, pre-employment fitness test and occupational medicine testing prior to their start date in orientation. Orientation commences once a month and all employees are required to complete 2 1/2 weeks of classroom orientation, which is then followed by field training.
Out-of-State Paramedic Applicants
All out-of-state paramedic applicants must be eligible to obtain a temporary New Mexico paramedic license. Applicants will be reviewed for minimum qualifications and will be contacted for a phone screening or phone interview. If an applicant is selected for an on-site interview, the applicant will be required to submit a completed application to the NM EMS Bureau to obtain a temporary New Mexico paramedic license. Once onsite, the candidate will be required to take and pass our paramedic exam, interview, and participate in a 3rd ride.

Presbyterian is committed to a drug-free workplace. We are an equal opportunity employer.
Albuquerque Ambulance orientation commences once a month. All EMTs begin in a 2 1/2 week class room orientation, then team up with a field supervisor to train and work out in the field. After training and orientation, employees are partnered with another paramedic to work in the field until they are ready to function on their own. All new Paramedics are then assigned to the float pool once they clear from orientation. The float pool is a group of new Paramedics that bid every month by seniority on shifts for the following month. The float pool is reserved for new Paramedics to AAS regardless of experience. The average time spent in the float pool is 8-10 months but the goal is to move all new Paramedics to permanent shifts as quick as possible.
