The Honours program in Paramedic Practice is designed to provide students with a firm foundation for further study in Paramedic Practice and Paramedic Science and future vocational career pathways. The opportunity to undertake an in-depth research project will provide an important understanding of the processes of health research in laboratory, community and clinical settings. As well as the major research project students are required to investigate and communicate analysis and outcomes of other important contemporary biomedical and health research.

The Bachelor of Paramedic Practice (Honours) prepares students for career development upon completion of their Paramedic Practice degree. By providing a year of training in research, it aims to give students a competitive edge in post-graduate and vocational study, or in seeking employment in the profession or for academic work.

Career outcomes

The Paramedic profession offers a diverse range of career opportunities. On completion of the BParaPrac, graduates will work in an approved Ambulance Service. Graduates of the BParaPrac (Hons) will be well placed for advanced vocational career pathways, including clinical practice, research and education.

Professional Recognition

While there is no professional recognition, students will gain skills to allow them to move into research related areas. It will also prepare students for research related activities required on later vocational pathways.
