    Graduate Certificate of Aeromedical Retrieval

    I have a big love for pre hospital trauma and I would really love to pursue a career in aeromedical retrieval in a civilian and military capacity. This course is the only one of its kind in Australia and it is giving me the base and knowledge I need to expand my career, especially the aerial and the marine diving side.

    Graduate Certificate of Aeromedical Retrieval

    The highlight of my 2 years study was visiting the campus to do a study block. As an experienced medical professional already, it was fantastic for me to meet the other students and lecturers who shared my interests. All in all, it was a great experience.
