If you are an existing and experienced paramedic, you are encouraged to apply for the Master of Specialist Paramedic Practice, which includes specialisations in Aeromedical retrieval or Intensive care. This course will support you in improving your current knowledge, skills and clinical practice in order to prepare you for specialist clinical positions, as well as for leadership, education and research roles.
You'll develop autonomous clinical reasoning and decision-making abilities based on an advanced understanding and interpretation of clinical presentations.
You'll also learn and demonstrate advanced techniques and treatment regimes which will enable them to provide the highest level of out-of-hospital care for their specialist area of paramedic practice.
You'll extend your clinical practice by initially undertaking specialist paramedic-focused training in advanced clinical leadership and decision making, as well as advanced techniques, in order to provide the highest level of care in your chosen specialisation. You'll also explore clinical practice within an integrated emergency medical system, and consider the issues and trends that influence scope of practice and service delivery.
Our course fosters the integration of reflection, professionalism, leadership, teamwork, interpersonal communication, and patient-focused care at an advanced level into all areas of clinical practice.
You'll also develop skills in research methods and be guided through a research project in an area of interest relevant to your specialisation.
