During your second year you’ll undertake a further ten weeks of placement with the Ambulance Service during which you’ll develop and enhance your clinical practice in line with your learning at university in order to complete the module Clinical Practice in Paramedic Science I.

In addition you’ll undertake five weeks of placements with our out-of-ambulance partners. These will include Maternity Services, Community and Mental Health Services, Intensive Care Environments and Admission Units. Community placements may include GP surgeries, walk-in centres or Minor Injury Units. These are provided to ensure that you, as a developing health care professional, are able to perform autonomous clinical practice aware of the wider health industry.
