    Hey guys.
    Im looking to study medicine the year after next, and my back up is going to be Paramedic science, with a view to go into Medicine postgraduate. Does anyone know how likely this is to be successful?


    Edit: possibly worth mentioning I'm interested in pre-hospital care medicine

    You'd need to give us some idea of your grades, work experience etc before we could have a clue whether your initial application to medicine would be likely to be successful. Then worry about paramedic science/grad entry. But yes, it is perfectly possible to do medicine after a degree in paramedic science and I know a few who have done it.

    It's worth mentioning to you, however, that if PHEM is your thing, it's likely to be at least 10 years (5 years med school, 2 years foundation, 3 years ACCS) before you get any significant exposure to it in medicine apart from the odd SSC if you're lucky. I wouldn't get your heart set too much on any one specialty.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
