It can be the difference between life and death. A highly-trained, clear-thinking professional paramedic regularly faces life and death situations as a first responder. It’s unpredictable. It’s demanding. And it’s exciting. But is it for you? Studying our Paramedicine degree will help you answer that question. Here, your studies will include many hours in work placement experiences with WA-based healthcare providers. And our realistic on-campus simulations will help you develop practical skills, like pre-hospital diagnostic techniques, that are critical in this profession. You’ll be taught by AHPRA registered industry professionals with on-road experience, with many still actively working in the profession. They’ll help you develop an understanding of professional and ethical practice, communication and safe practice within the public health, social, cultural and clinical paramedical science environments. When you graduate, you can consider further specialisation across a range of postgraduate courses, including Critical Care Paramedicine, Extended Care Paramedicine and Disaster and Emergency Response.
