Overview

Paramedicine Principles 2 is the second course that specifically addresses common medical and surgical conditions and emergencies that are encountered in paramedic practice.

The epidemiological, pathophysiological and clinical presentations of these conditions will also be covered. This course will also develop the students' ability to acquire and critically appraise evidence and determine the relationship between provisional and differential diagnosis.
