Bachelor of Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice
Every day Julian Hannah saves lives in one of the world’s busiest cities.
A Bachelor of Emergency Health graduate, Julian was recruited straight from Monash to work as a paramedic for the London Ambulance Service (LAS). Specialist on-the-job training, clinical autonomy and exposure to a high number of patients are just some of the benefits of his current role. Julian notes “you have many opportunities to work in different areas within the ambulance service as well as extending your practice to work in other specialist areas outside of the ambulance setting." On days off, he’s taking advantage of living in “the gateway to Europe” with plenty of opportunities to travel and explore other countries, providing “a great work-life balance."
Choosing Monash based on reputation, Julian benefited from our Emergency Health staff’s strong clinical links as well as opportunities to take part in research. “All the educators were extremely experienced paramedics and well established academics. This showed through in lectures and practical teachings, something that has both pushed and encouraged me personally and academically in my career as a paramedic.”
Julian credits his time at Monash for providing him the knowledge, skills and experience to open many doors in the future. “In five years’ time I could be anywhere - I could still be in Europe working as a paramedic for one of the ambulance services, I could be back in Victoria with my family, I could be working for a foreign aid company, the options are endless.”
