The world of Paramedicine is brilliant but tough and this society allows us to work together, make friends and enjoy every moment. We want to create an inclusive, supportive environment that helps you to develop into the best clinician you could possibly be whilst also enjoying every minute of it!
ParaSoc is back and bigger than ever!
This year, we are committed to providing the best support to you! Whether you're a student studying Paramedic Science or simply interesting in prehospital care and gaining some first aid/basic life support experience to help you in you're everyday life.
We are aiming this year to provide even more opportunities and events including:
1. Regular first aid/basic life support training sessions - possibility of gaining certification in first aid to use in future occupations.
2. Student study support (drop-in) sessions - for paramedic science students seeking advice and support in areas that are a challenge.
3. A range of talks/presentations from experienced health care professionals such as Doctors, Paramedics and Nurses with diverse backgrounds in health care.
4. Regular social events - interaction with different like-minded people and having essential down-time away from study (BBQ's, Pub Quizes, Sports events).
To provide opportunities for Continual Professional Development, social events, and collaborative events primarily aimed at Paramedic Students (but also inclusive of all HSC students or interested parties). To consistently integrate all 3 cohorts of the BSc and Dip HE Paramedic Science Programme.
To coordinate the above through regular committee meetings, member involvement, and devolvement into sub-committees where appropriate.
