IRCP College & University Paramedic Degree Alignment Planning

Date: 11 May, 2017

Time: 08.30 - 17.00

Address: Solihull West Midlands, B91 1AT, The St Johns Hotel

Event Information

The International Roundtable on Community Paramedicine and the College of Paramedics host Paramedic Degree Alignment Planning.

Driven by changes in the healthcare environment, communities globally are increasing their reliance on professional paramedic services. In response, several countries are requiring educational advances that include moving towards degree requirements for entry to practice for paramedics. Even where not mandatory, some employers are seeking a degree educated paramedic workforce and the paramedic workforce demands mobility.

Because of these changes, the International Roundtable on Community Paramedicine and the College of Paramedics are hosting this second forum for colleges and universities that educate paramedics.

The goal of this forum is to:

  • Further understand existing and proposed models of higher education in paramedicine
  • Identify research priorities
  • Optimise and coordinate efforts
  • Plan for increasing the global mobility of all paramedics (including but not limited to Community Paramedics).  

Through discussion, the aim is to seek alignment among the paramedic academic community on essential content, (e.g. foundations, depth and breadth requirements) structure, academic department(s) etc., necessary to educate paramedics of all levels and advance the profession.

Why should my academic institution attend?  

  • By aligning required and desired coursework your institution will better support paramedic students and their employers.
  • Debate the direction, appropriateness and utility of higher education in paramedicine broadly
  • Discuss educational advances and research impacting paramedicine education broadly
  • Be part of the team that identifies research priorities and participate in research to answer the priorities  
  • Contribute to the establishment of global educational goals in paramedicine degree programs
