The Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice postgraduate courses are specialised programs, designed for Advanced Life Support level (or equivalent) working paramedics to broaden their skills, knowledge base and scope of practice to a Specialist Paramedic level. Our postgraduate courses now include three respective streams: Intensive Care, Aeromedical and Retrieval and Extended Care Paramedic Practice. Our programs have rapidly evolved in line with this exciting industry and Monash has long established itself as being the industry leaders in delivering the highest quality postgraduate paramedic education and training.
What sets our programs apart?
Our postgraduate courses are delivered primarily by distance education which has posed some unique challenges for our team to ensure that our graduates can demonstrate the right balance of academic knowledge, clinical decision making, advanced patient assessment but also the performance of advanced care skills. As clinically focussed programs, this has necessitated for our team to design a unique combination of content delivery and assessment formats to maintain engagement and ensure clinical competency in our student cohorts. Our team consistently demonstrates a focus on quality assurance and embedding improvement processes into the ever evolving units of study we deliver. Our team is motivated, experienced, contemporary and extremely knowledgeable. They will challenge you to become clinicians beyond a level of competency and proficiency because our team believe that our graduates should be delivering optimal patient care; supported by contemporary medical evidence.
