And so it begins… A new year, new start.Year 2 of the Paramedic Science course at ARU is looking to be challenging and rewarding. I’m starting my year with hospital placements, heading to ITU, coronary care and (perhaps the best part) maternity. I’m looking forward to getting the best I can out of every day I spend in these 3 places. I won’t be back on an ambulance until November, which I miss, but I should be able to catch up fairly quick! A new trimester brings new subjects, Anatomy & Physiology, Professional Role of the Paramedic and Patient Assessment Module 2. It’s looking like a tough year, but it just means cracking down and working even harder. I look forward to writing more blogs as the year progresses, hopefully with new insightful experiences and lots and lots of learning!
We’ve also introduced ourselves (see, barging in on them in their BLS lesson) and have really enjoyed chatting to the new 1st years, our future friends and colleagues. We wish them the best this year. Good luck guys!!
