Uk ems people!


Forum Lieutenant
I have recently become super obsessed with the possibility of going to the UK to be a paramedic. I love that they have "paramedic apprentice/student" programs! From how it looks, it is a 5 year program working on the job and having part time class/studying until you finally become a registered paramedic with a degree in Paramedic Science. It sounds like they are actively trying to recruit more ECAs (EMTs) and Paramedics across the country.

Is anyone here from the UK? Which of the 10 ambulance trusts are the most interesting to work for? I'd guess London of course but they are not currently looking for student medics. I see the entire East England is soon accepting applications for paramedic students. How difficult would it be for an American EMT to get into a student paramedic program?
