We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Paramedical Science train postgraduates in the skills needed to treat individuals with acute illness or injuries within an urgent, on-site environment. These courses can sometimes also be studied as a PGDip or a PGCert.
Related subjects include Unscheduled Care and Remote & Offshore Medicine. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Nursing or Medicine.
Paramedical Science is crucial to the day-to-day care of society. After all, accidents and emergencies can happen at any time, in any location; these courses will provide you with the expertise to work within a range of fast-paced, hands-on situations.
You will be trained in techniques for managing injuries in different environments, from small-scale accidents such as workplace injuries, to large-scale emergencies like car crashes. This could include administering basic first aid, undertaking defibrillation exercises or driving emergency vehicles.
Paramedics are usually placed within the emergency medical services, including the emergency departments of hospitals, and offering assistance on ambulances. They may also specialise in search and rescue in rural areas or offshore via helicopters and boats.
