Practical placement 5 – clinical paramedic

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

Paramedicine is a practical discipline, however it assumes a broad theoretical grounding. In order for students to be able to see the connection between theory and practice from an early stage, there will be a significant focus on practical knowledge throughout the course. Practical teaching will encompass a combination of supervised professional training, observation in clinical practice, skills training and simulation.

Learning outcome

Students will be able to:
  • Reflect on the role of paramedics in the patient flow that includes several disciplines and levels, as well as elements of the health service
  • Account for the organisation of patient-work in pre-hospital services
  • Discuss patient-work in interdisciplinary teams
  • Relate practice to applicable legislation, frameworks and ethical guidelines that regulate work in the ambulance service
  • Reflect on differences (similarities/differences) between the different practices of different nations

Students will be able to:
  • Provide advanced lifesaving first aid
  • Communicate with patients, loved ones and other cooperating personnel in a confident manner that builds relationships
  • Carry out a structured patient examination and document findings thereof
  • Examine, assess and propose initiatives and treatment of patients receiving pre-hospital services

General competencies
Students will be able to:
  • Maintain order and hygiene
  • Show empathy, care and respect for patients, loved ones and cooperative partners.
  • Demonstrate the willingness and ability to use guidance and feedback
  • Identify their own knowledge requirements
  • Guide fellow students and colleagues
  • Contribute their own knowledge to the field of study


This period of practical training comprises 8-10 weeks of supervised professional training. During this period of practical training, students will engage in practice primarily in vehicular ambulances, boat-based ambulances and attending courses as a guest student in air ambulance services. In the ambulance service, students will work as the third person in a team under the supervision of an experienced paramedic. This course will also facilitate other relevant practical placements.
