The Bachelor of Paramedicine prepares you for a rewarding career as a Paramedic. You will become an emergency care specialist - enabling you to work in emergency ambulance and pre-hospital environments in regional, remote and urban settings.
During the three-year degree you'll gain vital clinical decision-making, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. You'll learn about anatomy and physiology, human development and Australia's health-care systems and policies. You will develop knowledge in clinical science areas including trauma and emergency-based response. This course also has a strong focus on Indigenous Health perspectives, mental health and specific care of maternal, neonatal and paediatric patients.
This course is focussed on providing relevant industry experience. CDU and the Northern Territory's exclusive paramedic service provider, St John Ambulance Australia (NT) Inc., have partnered to offer this specialised course. You will gain hands-on experience completing three units of placements with the St John Ambulance Australia (NT) or other services across Australia.
