Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science is designed to provide the theoretical knowledge, clinical skills and practical work experience required to provide high quality, autonomous, responsive healthcare associated with the professional practice of a paramedic. Paramedics deliver a broad spectrum of healthcare in a range of situations from giving life-saving medical help at the scene of an accident to supporting a patient who is experiencing a mental health crisis. Every case or call is different, and as well as caring for your patient you will also need to be able to look after your patient’s friends and family and communicate with a range of other health care professionals and the emergency services. Paramedics must have the skills to assess, diagnose, prescribe, treat and refer patients to the most appropriate care pathway. You will need to be able to work with patients across the lifespan, from birth to older adults, and think and act quickly under pressure. This course will cover all of the key areas of study outlined by the College of Paramedics including; physical sciences; life sciences; social, health and behavioural sciences; clinical sciences; ethics and law; patient assessment; care delivery; leadership; evidence based practice; health informatics; incident response management and practice skills. The degree is offered over a ‘long’ academic year, consisting of 45 weeks of study, 50% of which will be practical placements with a variety of healthcare service providers. Reflecting the scope of modern paramedic practice you will experience placements in a range of settings within the primary, acute, urgent, community and emergency care environments.
