Paramedics play an essential role in the delivery of patient care in the complex and dynamic pre-hospital care environment. The role requires the use of potentially life-saving clinical skills and interventions. In accordance with the College of Paramedics Curriculum Guidance, this award incorporates key areas of the physical and life sciences, social health, behavioural and clinical sciences, ethics and law, leadership and evidence/research-based practice. Your time at the University will be spent in one of our Centres of Excellence in Healthcare Education, where you will learn the theoretical elements of Paramedic Science and practise your skills in our dedicated skills labs. As training to be a paramedic also demands real-world experience, 50% of your time will be spent on placement.
