Student Paramedic Conference

Date: 28 Oct, 2017

Time: 09.00 - 16.00

Address: Sheffield Hallam University, Howard St, Sheffield S1 1WB, Yorkshire

Event Information

Gold Sponsors:

 

The UK student paramedic conference was established in 2013 by a group of paramedic students at the University of Hertfordshire.  

The first conference was a huge success, attracting over 200 delegates from higher education programmes and NHS ambulance trusts, including representatives from all levels of the paramedic profession.

The main aims of the conference are to provide affordable CPD opportunities for students and practicising paramedics, and to bridge the gap between education and practice.  

The event continued to be successful in 2014 (200 delegates) and 2015 (300 delegates). We are really excited to announce the return of UKSPC under the College of Paramedics.
