Degree Programme in Emergency Care

This curriculum is a translation of the curriculum of the Finnish degree program.

Development of Expertise

In Savonia's curricula, the study units form broader study units. In this way, they support the overall development of the student and the development of expertise. At the same time, it is possible to combine teaching and work-based research and development.
The curriculum for paramedics is designed to:
- the degree produces the skills required in working life
- the training ensures the development of the student's expertise.

-prepares a personal study plan to support his / her studies, in which previously acquired competence is identified (includes at least 5 credits of studying in a foreign language)
-responsible for the progress of their studies.
Savonia teachers and other staff guide and support in defining and achieving personal goals.

The development of a paramedic student's expertise starts with familiarization with nursing work and first aid work and progresses through development and deepening into the application of first aid and nursing work. In outpatient emergency care studies, progress is made through basic-level emergency care studies to nursing-level emergency care skills. The annual themes and their competency level descriptions, as well as the semester themes and the competence objectives of the themes, help the learner to plan and assess his / her professional growth and focus on learning core knowledge and skills as well as ethical principles. Learning is a goal-oriented, situational and interactive activity. This requires identifying the learner’s own goals and objectives. After completing the degree and having sufficient work experience, it is possible to apply for a master's degree.
