Team Australia EMS' core values are Clinical Excellence, Professionalism & Integrity. We incorporate these into everything that we do. It is why we exist & our motivation to thrive.
Following our successes in the international arena, competing against top paramedic teams from around the world, Team Australia EMS have elected to motivate & mentor our future paramedic leaders to achieve greatness. We want to provide them with the skills & knowledge to differentiate themselves from the rest of their cohorts, to make them the best, & most employable new graduate paramedics.
To this end in 2015 we invited 13 Australian & New Zealand Paramedic students to join us on a Professional Development Tour to Cape Town, South Africa. The tour was a resounding success with students working alongside & observing, Critical Care Paramedics in a high acuity trauma setting. The students worked with multiple emergency services, visited aeromedical operations & hospitals, & toured the best highlights & attractions, including shark cage diving, 5 star safaris & interactions with wild cheetahs.
Students attended Professional Development workshops with Team Australia EMS, ER24 & Life Healthcare as well as visited the Cape Peninsular University Undergraduate Degree program. Students also had a tour of the South African Red Cross Air Mercy Service.
It is our aim to lead & mentor our future paramedics & inspire them to achieve greatness. As we tell our students, "You do not study to pass the test. You study to prepare for the day that you are the only thing between a patient & the grave"
This year Team Australia EMS are embarking on two more international tours - South Africa & the USA.
