Gain real-life experience in the field during your clinical placements.

Clinical placements are an integral part of the program. Our primary care paramedic training covers such a wide range of topics, from first aid and CPR to Pathophysiology (the physiology of abnormal states of the body), that it would be impossible for you to learn all the skills you need just in class.

Clinical placements are also a great networking opportunity. We have many relationships with local medical professionals who provide placement sites for our students, so it is not uncommon for us to help place graduates directly into jobs after they finish their studies with us.
