We understand that paramedics need to demonstrate a range of well-developed managerial, leadership, interpersonal and problem solving skills, in addition to the more specialist clinical elements which this course supports.
The degree is designed to enhance your current knowledge and understanding and enable you to challenge and critically evaluate your professional practice. It aims to advance your skills as a professional and enhance your career pathway opportunities.
The modules in this programme have been designed and developed to ensure they match the requirements paramedics need to demonstrate in their advancing role. It also includes inter-professional modules, which are aimed at health professionals who cross professional boundaries in their day-to-day practice.
