Our Education Practice

The Institute of Pre-Hospital Care’s education practice, led by Dr. Gareth Grier, aims to set a high standard for international pre-hospital medical education, and prepare doctors and paramedics to meet it. The Institute will do this primarily through higher education programmes; but also, on a selected basis, through bespoke training programmes for affiliated pre-hospital care institutions.

A core component of The Institute’s education strategy is The Intercalated BSc in Pre-Hospital Medicine, which it developed and will deliver in partnership with Queen Mary University of London's Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry beginning September 2014. The first of its kind in the U.K., this degree course is open to eligible U.K. medical students. Please click here for more information.

Another important component of The Institute’s education practice is The Pre-Hospital Care Course (formerly The Helicopter Crew Course). This seven-day course runs three times per year, and is open to new recruits to London’s Air Ambulance and affiliated air ambulances in the U.K. The Royal College of Anaesthetists has approved this course for 20 CPD points.
