Last Friday saw 41 successful candidates awarded a Diploma in Paramedical Science in Cork. The newly qualified paramedics received the diploma from the College of Medicine and Health, UCC after two years of training and study with the national ambulance service (NAS) and UCC. They will now all be full time paramedics in the national ambulance service.

The programme is currently lead by Professor Stephen Cusack, who said: “We are delighted to be in partnership with the NAS in this new phase of paramedic education.

“This represents a significant step in UCC’s involvement in professional paramedic development and our provision of future courses nationally and internationally.

“It is envisaged that in the near term, UCC will launch programs in Advanced Paramedic practice, Community Paramedicine and Critical Care Paramedicine in support of the ambitions for healthcare evolution of our partners in the NAS and HSE.”
