Paramedic Practice (subject to approval)

Robert Gordon University

Content

As a Paramedic you will play an integral part in the National Health Service. Not only will you deliver front-line emergency care on road ambulances, you’ll also work in a number of advanced practice areas such as primary and critical care.

Year 1:
You will undertake theory modules and develop your core skills through simulated learning before you go onto placement. Interprofessional learning will build your communication skills. Whilst on placement you will develop risk management skills preparing you for the urgent and emergency care environments
in Year 2.

Year 2:
Year 2 will build on theories and concepts, introducing more complexity relating to paramedic science. Placements within ambulance and non-ambulance environments will focus on developing your history taking and assessment skills building on exposure to the urgent and emergency care environment.

Year 3:
Theory modules will consolidate learning and prepare you to become a registered Paramedic (HCPC). You will address theories and concepts such as pharmacology; advanced assessment and consultation skills; resilience and disaster preparedness; leadership and quality improvement. You may have the opportunity of an elective placement in this year.
