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:
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.
