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 part-time Diploma in Health Sciences (Paramedicine) for in-service Emergency Medical Technicians & Specialists with the aim to deepen their 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.

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