CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati is requiring all medical school students to undergo EMT training.

According to the UC College of Medicine, they are only one of three schools in the country to make this a requirement.

Students will receive EMT training during the first two weeks of class, and the goal is to better prepare students for out-of-hospital medical situations, like choking or minor car accidents.

"These are the very fundamentals of the things that they will be trained for over the next four years and over the rest of their life essentially. This allows them the very introduction to have some very utilizable skills going forward," explained UC's Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine Dustin Calhoun. 

A total of 175 students are participating. This is the third year the College of Medicine has done the training.
