Paramedic Science BSc will enable you to train as a paramedic, providing immediate assistance to patients in the emergency out of hospital environment and to assess, treat and refer patients requiring urgent care.
BSc Paramedic Science is designed to develop you into an effective clinician who is capable of responding to and managing life-threatening emergency situations, from cardiac arrest to multi-system trauma. You will also cover minor illness and injury, as managing these types of patient calls, along with chronic conditions, are the main part of a paramedic’s workload. The programme will train you in out of hospital care, urgent care, mental health, social needs, maternity, chronic conditions, pharmacology and trauma.
The degree combines learning in the workplace with academic study. Students time is split between academic blocks at University (including simulated practice) and clinical placement blocks at the UK’s busiest Ambulance Trust and other practice placements.
Once enrolled on the course you can apply for student membership of the College of Paramedics, the UK’s paramedic professional body. This can be upgraded to full membership following graduation. Students who successfully complete the programme will be eligible for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.
The course is awarded by St George’s, University of London, and is delivered by the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education.
