It takes a particular sort of person to become an Ambulance Paramedic. They put themselves in the front-line of medical care every day making life-changing decisions. Their role is to respond to emergency calls from the public, assisting pre-hospital care. This creative, innovative degree addresses the changing healthcare environment, with an interprofessional health education focus and specialised fieldwork experience. The first year of the degree is undertaken within the Health Sciences interprofessional first year structure. Clinical laboratories will be delivered by the St John Western Australia College of Pre-Hospital Care. To complete the three-year program, you must meet all academic and on-road practical requirements and maintain employment with St John Western Australia as an ambulance officer. You will graduate with a degree and on successful completion of a final transitional period with St John will become a St John Ambulance paramedic. This program is not available to international onshore students studying on student visas.
