PA students join Dublin Fire Brigade

31 July 2016

The PA students joined paramedics at fire stations across Dublin recently for a first-hand experience of emergency medicine. During a busy week students encountered many of the typical cases handled by Dublin Fire Brigade, from cardiac arrest, stroke and seizures to dementia, overdoses and head injuries.

An extensive series of quality clinical placements is planned for the students to experience life as a practicing PA. Future placements will be hosted across healthcare settings including hospitals, GP practices and community health services.
