The graduation celebrations, at the Bonus Arena in Hull, demonstrate how the University is developing skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate healthcare professionals who provide a high-level of quality care to members of the public.
The extent of the University’s healthcare courses continues to grow with the University now offering a range of healthcare apprenticeships, and the introduction of a Physiotherapy degree in 2020 to tackle regional staff shortages.
The Class of 2020’s Paramedic Science students have all successfully qualified as registered paramedics, many of whom are serving the local community with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service. They have all been successful in finding full-time roles.
Our graduates make an outstanding contribution to improving the health of the people in our region and beyond, evidenced by the fact that for two consecutive years 100% of our nursing, midwifery and medical graduates are in employment or further education within 15 months.*
Nicki Credland, Head of Department of Paramedical, Perioperative and Advanced Practice in the Faculty of Health Sciences, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating the success of the first cohort of paramedic students to be graduating from the University of Hull this week.
