Development of paramedic courses at the University of Worcester


This article discusses the prehospital programmes on offer at the University of Worcester. The three courses offered are directed at both pre-registration and post-registration students. The newest edition to the university prospectus is the development of a higher education diploma in paramedic science for IHCD trained and Health Professions Council (HPC) registered paramedics. The programme has been designed in recognition of the HPC requirements for the paramedic to ensure that they maintain their fitness practice by continual professional development through keeping their knowledge and skills up-to-date (Health Professions Council, 2007).
