Specialist Paramedic Practice - M6015
Expert master degree
If you are an existing and experienced paramedic, you are encouraged to apply for the Master of Specialist Paramedic Practice (which includes a nested graduate certificate for the aeromedical and retrieval specialisation, as well as a graduate diploma for the intensive care and extended care specialisations). 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 be provided with advanced education and training in pre-hospital care in an intensive care, extended care or aeromedical and retrieval specialisation.
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.
You’ll also study clinical research methodology and may choose to complete a research project or other specialist elective coursework units to enhance your clinical skills.
Completion of the research stream provides a pathway into higher degrees by research (subject to meeting separate HDR entry requirements.) You may also apply to exit the master’s course with one of the nested awards, provided you meet the criteria.
