In your third year you’ll undertake a further ten weeks of placement with the Ambulance Service, achieving the standards required for autonomous practice as a paramedic and completing the module Clinical Practice in Paramedic Science II.

In addition you’ll be placed for a further five weeks with out-of-ambulance providers, completing two weeks in Theatres, two weeks in an Emergency Department and a further week in Paediatric Services. These placements will enhance your clinical practice, enabling exposure to key clinical interventions that are often required within emergency medicine.
