About the Course

With the increased complexity of pre-hospital emergency care, advancements in military medicine and rising public expectations, there is a need to further enhance the skills of paramedics, to keep abreast of evolving field medical doctrine and the broadening scope of paramedic practice.

Nanyang Polytechnic, in collaboration with the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), SAF Medical Training Institute (SMTI) and the Unit for Pre-hospital Emergency Care (UPEC), developed the Diploma in Health Sciences (Paramedicine) with the aim to deepen students’ knowledge of medical sciences and research to enable greater understanding of paramedic treatment protocols, so as to better manage complex medical emergencies. The course will also equip them with transferable skills such as communication, leadership, logistics and crisis management, to improve operational effectiveness and work efficiency.

Students can look forward to learning from experienced trainers from the School of Health Sciences and School of Business Management.
