Bachelor of Paramedicine
Monash University, Australia
Paramedics are health care professionals who provide unscheduled and emergency health care to individuals in the community. They assess patients, initiate care, and determine appropriate transport or referral to enable continuing care. Paramedics respond to a range of situations, attend cases in a wide variety of settings, and work with a broad range of other health care professionals and emergency services. The Bachelor of Paramedicine will develop the knowledge and skills you need to practice as a paramedic within national, international and private ambulance services, or in the community sector.
In the first year of this course you will focus on foundation concepts which build a solid base of knowledge and skills. These will be expanded upon with more complex subject matter in the subsequent years. You will study the structure and function of the human body, human development across the life span, disease processes, learn about the Australian health care system and the role paramedics play within it. You will also study foundation research skills and develop an awareness of the important role research plays in evidenced-based paramedic practice.
In the second and third years you will develop core knowledge and skills to treat cardiovascular, respiratory, mental health, traumatic and medical emergency presentations, as well as learn specific care of maternal, neonatal, geriatric and paediatric patients. You will also learn about emergency management and the role of paramedics in mass casualty disaster incidents. During these years the underlying theory of these clinical units will be complemented by large practical components where you will participate in scenario-based exercises.
The on-campus learning is strengthened by a significant clinical placement component which is spread over the three years of the course. Clinical placements within community settings, hospitals, and private and public ambulance services allow you to put learning into context and practice.
This course is challenging and dynamic, and offers the successful graduate the potential for a rewarding and satisfying career in out-of-hospital emergency care.

Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine is one of the largest in Europe, with medical campuses across north and west London and partnerships with a wide range of NHS Trusts, hospitals and clinics. In response to several drivers for change, including updated GMC guidance, technological development in education and healthcare, the planned Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA) and expectations of medical practice within the NHS of the future, a review of the MBBS programme has been undertaken and a new curriculum developed.
Our teaching is enriched by our internationally competitive research and clinical expertise, so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. We deliver the course through a range of innovative and traditional teaching methods, including lectures, small group teaching, computer workshops, laboratory classes and problem-based learning.
The emphasis of our new MBBS programme is on the development of Professional Values and Behaviours, Professional skills, and Professional Knowledge, in line with the GMC’s most recently published Outcomes for Graduates (2018). The redeveloped spiral curriculum is delivered in three phases and provides exciting opportunities for our students and staff including:
- More opportunities for clinical skills training and patient experience.
- A case-based learning approach to facilitate integration and translation of scientific knowledge to clinical care.
- A structure to facilitate active, life-long learning, with each module building on the previous one, adding more depth and complexity.
- A Programmatic Assessment strategy to enable you to build your knowledge throughout your studies.
- A focus on the application of science and research skills in Phase 2, expanding upon early science exposure in Phase 1.
- A redeveloped and enhanced tutoring programme to support your progression with a focus on Study Skills.

BA in Medicine
University of Oxford, United Kingdom
The practice of Medicine offers a breadth of experiences impossible to find in any other subject. Every day brings different patients with different needs. It’s a great choice for scientists who strive to understand and apply research findings to improve the lives of the patients in their care. It offers a meaningful career that is prestigious, secure and well paid. However, practising Medicine can be arduous, stressful, frustrating and bureaucratic and is not suited to everyone. You need to be sure that Medicine is the right choice for you. These pages will help you work that out, but there’s no better way to find out for sure than by gaining insight into medical practice by seeing it in action and talking to those who provide healthcare. Studying Medicine because that is what is expected of you is never a good idea; make sure that your motives for choosing to do so are well reasoned.
