I am writing this review in hope of keeping you from experiencing what I had to experience. I began attending San Jacinto College North Campus EMS program in the spring of 2010. The faculty at San Jacinto College treated me and my classmates like 3 year-olds. I was yelled at during class by San Jac staff because I went to the water fountain to get a drink of water during ITLS class. The teacher for the classroom portion (Cindy Lemoine) gave preferential treatment to certain students while others were admonished for the same thing. For example, a certain student would argue over exam questions he thought were graded incorrectly. Cindy Lemoine would often retract that question and give extra points. If another student tried to argue against a question, Cindy Lemoine would tell us to be happy with our A or B grade as it was. That was just the classroom portion of the class. There was also a clinical portion. This was run by Michael Cooper and everything was overseen by John Hamilton. The OR shifts were run by Doug Chappell. We were forced to use an inadequate website for signing up for shifts. The locations were mis-classified and named incorrectly. For example, I signed up for a rotation at Harris County. No specific location was specified so I showed up at station 96. I was told that I was supposed to be at station 91. I ended up getting there an hour later and the paramedic yelled at me at told me to tell my "little friends" to get their act together. The worst personal experience happened when Doug Chappell wrote me a nasty email stating that I was not being given credit for a rotation because the paramedic in-charge signed his portion of my report incorrectly.
I finally left the school when I was placed on clinical suspension without being told why. This is illegal. Yes. look it up.
If you need any further proof as to why you should steer clear of this place, take a look at the National Registry results. This is like the "SAT" exit exam of EMS. San Jacinto College Emergency Medical Technology program has a first-time pass rate of 40%. The national average is about 80%. Here is the reference link.
