EMA Teachers

Mr. Hayato Yuuki

This is my ninth year here at Estancia High School and I absolutely love it. I love being part of the EMA program as it is what I have been doing for the past 15 years. I started my Pre Hospital background back in 2004 and worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for a private ambulance company that contracted with the Anaheim Fire Department. During that time, I was fortunate enough to work at Anaheim Station 6 for 3 years, and had an average medical call rate of 25 calls per shift.  After Anaheim Station 6, I then took a leave of absence to go to Paramedic School at Saddleback College. Paramedic school is an intense 6 month program in which the first 3 months are classroom based, then hospital rotations for 1 month, and then actually working in the field for the next 2. I was fortunate enough to do my Paramedic Internship with OCFA Medic 17, and Santa Ana Fire, SAM4. After Paramedic school, I came back to Anaheim and worked at Anaheim Station 3 (Disney Resort) and was able to continue my Pre Hospital medical career. In 2005, I graduated from the Santa Ana College Fire Academy, and in late 2007, I received my Double Subjects Teaching Credential, in which I was then able to teach High School students in my perspective career. My credential is in Health Education and Emergency Technology. I have taught at CoastlineROP, El Toro HS, Valley Vista HS, Westminster HS, and now at Estancia HS. I also work at UCI Medical Center in the Emergency Room as part of the Trauma Team. I am one of 9 people that are on the Trauma Team, and am able to provide quality care to patients that have suffered/sustained Trauma accidents.  

I love being part of the Estancia HS staff and try to stay involved in most school functions as they come around. I was fortunate enough to travel to Australia with our Australia Exchange Program twice, travel to Costa Rica with our World Cultures Club, been part of the softball program as an assistant JV coach, safety coordinator, and also been part of our Field Studies Program which has ventured me out to many beautiful places this nation has to offer.

Estancia Medical Academy

EMA Has Moved Locations

The Estancia Medical Academy has moved!! We are now located in room 205/206 (the old tutoring center, first wing) Come check out our new state of the art medical lab that has been converted into half class, half lab. We have purchased all new equipment including simulation mannequins, EMS gurneys, and much more to help aid the success of our EMA students. If you have a chance, swing by!   

The Estancia Medical Academy is a program that combines academic instruction with specialized training in that perspective health profession. Our goal of the program is to expose students to the diverse health career opportunities available in the medical industry. Students that are interested in joining the EMA program will begin their experience in the sophomore year taking two classes for a total of one year. In the fall, they will take Introduction to Medical Careers, and then Medical Terminology in the spring. Their journey continues into their junior year by taking one full year of Emergency Medical Responder. In this class, students learn various pre-hospital medical emergencies and treatments which could lead them to a fire department ride-along or trauma shadow opportunities. And then as a senior, students will conclude the program with a year of Sports Medicine.   

Estancia Medical Academy Mission/Value Statement

Our Estancia Medical Academy values are the guiding principles that serve as the foundation for everything we think, say and do as a high school student and as a professional in the pre-hospital/medical environment. They are our organizational code of conduct and signify what we stand for. We refuse to be less than what these values represent. Any philosophy, policy, practice or behavior that is outside of these values is unacceptable and will either be improved or removed. 

Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)

HOSA is an organization specially designed for future health professionals. The purpose of HOSA is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a program of motivation, awareness and recognition, which is an integral part of the Health Science Education instructional program. HOSA at Estancia High School is only offered to current EMA students and allows them to choose a medical category to compete in at the state level. State competitions are held in Sacramento, CA and Anaheim , CA and rotate every other year. They are 4 days in length, and students compete in there selected category. Competitions include several rounds, and consist of an online exam and practical skills. If students successfully complete and pass all aspects of testing, they will be eligible for award recognition that could consist of monetary, and/or scholarship rewards.

If interested in competing for HOSA, please come and see Mr. Yuuki and attend our professional weekly meetings.

(If you compete in HOSA at the State Leadership Conference, you can use the hours in lieu of the 20 hour internship for the CTE Medical Medallion. If you hold an officer position you will receive a cord at graduation. If you compete in HOSA all three years, you will receive a sash.)

CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)

As a junior, students that take the Emergency Medical Responder class will each have the opportunity to pass and complete all steps required to receive an official American Heart Association CPR card. With this card, students are able to perform infant/child/adult CPR and are able to officially use the AED (Automatic External Defibrillator.)

CTE Medallion Requirements

The purpose of the CTE Medallion program is to acknowledge graduating seniors who demonstrate superior performance in their chosen career technical education (CTE) pathway.  These are basic requirements that all students who desire this award must meet.  In addition, each site will be allowed to add additional requirements as appropriate.  The basic requirements used district-wide are:


1. Successful completion of all courses that comprise a specific, district recognized CTE pathway, such that a minimum of five (5) courses are completed of which two (2) are either ROP or college.


2. Participation in one (1) internship, job shadow and/or mentorship related to that specific CTE pathway for a minimum of 20 hours.  Verification of the above requirements will be left to each site’s CTE leadership team.  These requirements may be modified on a case-by-case basis to accommodate newly developing pathways and/or other special circumstances.  Students will be able to wear their CTE medallions over their gowns on graduation day. (If you compete in HOSA at the State Leadership Conference, you may use the hours in lieu of the internship)
