I like the fact that its outside, its active and it's different every day. It's different every job. You have no idea what's going to happen until that job drops down - it's really exciting.

Tegan Groom Rozelle, Campus - Sydney
Integrity, accountability, respect, professionalism and teamwork – these attributes embody the practice of Paramedicine.

If you’re compassionate, committed and want to make a difference in your community, a career in Paramedicine presents exciting and satisfying opportunities.

The Bachelor of Paramedicine is offered as a two-year, full time (fast-track) program, at two of our campuses, Hobart, Tasmania and Rozelle, NSW.
Throughout your degree, you'll have the chance to learn skills in small groups, and then apply what you learn to professional experience placements within ambulance services.

You’ll be taught by qualified paramedics, both on our staff and through our connections with the local healthcare sector.
We offer a low student/teacher ratio during your clinical practical experiences, which provides you with individual attention and support throughout your studies.

  • 1 Interpret and apply the disciplinary body of knowledge to contemporary paramedic practice
  • 2 Provide safe person-centred care informed by the principles of evidence-based and reflective practice in diverse settings
  • 3 Practice the discipline of paramedicine through the use of psychomotor, interpersonal, interprofessional and clinical decision-making skills
  • 4 Practice the profession in a legal, ethical, sustainable and culturally safe manner
  • Your studies will include clinical placements across both metropolitan and rural settings, with diverse patient groups, in various ambulance stations and other specialist health facilities, such as hospitals.

    In addition to experience in healthcare settings, you will also have the opportunity to:

    • Access simulation equipment in both Hobart and Rozelle
    • Undertake interdisciplinary learning activities with students studying other health courses such as nursing and medicine
    • Participate in community engagement activities such as Open Day
    Safety in Practice Compliance

    This course includes compulsory Professional Experience Placements. You must meet the College of Health and Medicine's Safety in Practice Requirements before census date of the first semester of your course. The safety in practice requirements are completed separately to the course admission application.

    Within this course you will undertake Professional Experience Placement (PEP) units. These units have a focus on communication, professionalism, safe practice and leadership, and can include a placement with an ambulance service, an aged care facility, other health service providers and international placement opportunities.

    Career outcomes

    Our Bachelor of Paramedicine allows you to work in complex, dynamic and sometimes extreme environments. Graduates will possess the expertise and values to have a positive impact on the quality of life for their community and will be equipped to work around the world.

    As a graduate, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to assess and manage a broad range of clinical presentations in an out-of-hospital setting. You’ll understand the importance of informed clinical reasoning, in situations often complicated by unpredictable environments.

    Graduates find work as a paramedic in organisations such as:

    • Your state-based ambulance service around Australia or New Zealand
    • International ambulance services
    • Industry emergency response units
    • Non-emergency transport
    • Australian Defence Forces
    • Community-based emergency health settings
