Team Australia EMS International Student Paramedic Professional Development Tours
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 strive to motivate & mentor our future paramedic leaders to achieve greatness. We 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.
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.
The following year we expanded our tours to the northern hemisphere in the United States of America where students visited three major cities (Los Angeles, San Diego & Las Vegas) across two states. Students worked alongside US paramedics who taught them the EMS systems & they visited aeromedical operations & hospitals, & toured the best highlights & attractions, including Disneyland, the Grand Canyon, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Las Vegas strip etc.
Students have been touring with us since 2015 & feedback has been entirely positive. In short, the students love it & learn so much. They network with international paramedics & prospective employers, & have demonstrated commitment to furthering their professional careers.
We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious EMS 10 - Innovators in EMS Award in the USA for our excellence & professionalism in conducting the international tours. We are recognised for providing the very best in professional development opportunities internationally.
