Course summary

**About This Course**Study for a degree in Paramedic Science and take your first steps towards a career where you can make a real difference when it’s needed most. Not for the faint-hearted, you’ll be tackling difficult and demanding situations, where you’ll have to think on your feet, use your initiative and make conscientious, patient-centered decisions every day. Our three-year Paramedic Science degree offers a contemporary and holistic approach to paramedic education. Both challenging and exciting, it will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to assess, treat, diagnose, supply and administer medicines, and to manage, discharge and refer patients in urgent, emergency, critical and non-hospital settings. In short, it will give you a flying start in this fast-paced profession. **Overview**Year-on-year, you’ll build on your skills, knowledge and experience, developing a solid foundation for your paramedic career. You’ll explore real human anatomy in our anatomy suite. And you’ll work side-by-side with other students and healthcare professionals, giving you 360° insight into everyone’s roles. Throughout the course, you’ll complete placements on ambulances, hospital wards, specialist units and general practice, so you can put the theory into practice. And you’ll be able to shape the course to fit your own skillset with an elective placement in your final year. Highlights of Paramedic Science at UEA: - Make the course your own by planning an elective placement (a self-funded four-week placement abroad) - Develop expertise working alongside fellow healthcare professionals, plus agencies including the fire and rescue service and the police - Explore real human anatomy linked to clinical practice in our anatomy suite - Undertake a range of clinical placements on ambulances and other clinical areas such as hospital wards, specialist units and in general practice - Become a valued member of and contributor to the #UEAParamedic community **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
