The Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice (DCEHPP) provides undergraduate and postgraduate courses to students currently working in or planning employment in out-of-hospital and community based emergency health settings.  The core business of DCEHPP is to:

  • provide education programs for paramedics from Australia and overseas and other health professionals in the field of community-based emergency health
  • undertake research in the field of community-based emergency health and paramedic practice.

DCEHPP is a leader in paramedic education, training and research, and has longstanding contractual agreements with Ambulance Victoria in the provision of Intensive Care Paramedic and Flight Intensive Care Paramedic training, and the Metropolitan Fire Brigade Services Board and their Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) program.  DCEHPP offers one of the national's most prestigious undergraduate programs: Bachelor of Emergency Health (BEH) and has so for over 10 years.  This degree offers potential paramedics with opportunities to work within an emergency ambulance service, and other community-based health settings in many parts of the world. DCEHPP also offers the internationally recognised master's program that offers clinical and research qualifications for current paramedics in Intensive Care, Aeromedicine and Extended Care Paramedicine.

In these roles, you will be responsible for:

  • undertaking research and other scholarly activities in clinical and/or education
  • designing, implementing and reviewing educational innovations
  • playing a leadership role in educational innovation, curriculum design and review
  • coordination of appropriate linkages between industry and Monash University.

To be successful, you will have qualifications and/or experience recognised by the University as appropriate for the relevant discipline area. A strong background in curricula design and delivery of different modes of education to on-campus and off-campus students is essential. High-level interpersonal skills and proven ability to establish a good working relationship with colleagues and students and to develop and maintain strong professional links with relevant industry and the community are also essential to the role.
