Welcome from Professor Hugh Grantham

Hugh Grantham I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you, not only to Flinders University and the Paramedic Unit, but also to the paramedic profession. Paramedics as you will shortly find out are a unique bunch.

They have the interests of the patient as the most important thing in their working life. You will find that the Paramedic Unit is infused with the same philosophy and that everything we teach you is ultimately in the interests of better patient care.

You will find that this focus runs through both University staff and ambulance service staff creating a focused family that has connections the world over.

While you are studying paramedics at Flinders we are all interested in your personal and academic well-being and have an open door for anybody with a worry, concern or problem, be it academic, clinical, personal or other. Don't forget to include us in the other side, your celebrations and laughs.

So, on behalf of the family I bid you a warm welcome.


Professor Hugh Grantham
Professor of Paramedics
