Course Description

Paramedics play an integral role in the health system, responding to emergencies involving patients with acute and sub-acute health problems in a range of diverse and uncontrolled settings. Paramedics provide unscheduled, out-of-hospital care to patients of all ages, dealing with health complaints that span the spectrum of illness and injury severity and complexity. This contemporary course has a strong evidence-based focus and uses innovative blended learning and assessment strategies, together with diverse clinical placements, to develop high level practical and clinical decision making skills. Completion of the course will enable you to work effectively as a paramedic in an ambulance service, the private paramedical industry, or the defence forces.

Western’s Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedicine) prepares you to be a successful paramadic. In second and third year, you’ll be given three months of supervised clinical experience with an emergency ambulance service in rural or metropolitan NSW or the ACT.
