Paramedic students' visit to the Second International Conference of Applied Medicine in Jordan

02 May 2017
Volume 7 · Issue 1

In December 2016, Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) hosted the Second International Conference of Applied Medicine/Paramedic. The primary aims of the conference were to equip its attendees to deal with medical emergencies currently prevalent in the middle east, to optimize all aspects of care for refugees and victims of war and social awareness, and to promote the spirit of universal participation. A select few students from Anglia Ruskin University (ARU, UK) were invited to attend the conference. Paramedic Diploma students from Anglia Ruskin University underwent a rigorous process of application and selection, after which four students were chosen to attend the conference at JUST.

Along with the conference, students also participated in a Clinical Simulation competition, consisting of students from five international teams. These comprised Royal Arabic Emirates, Jordanian University of Science and Technology, Jordanian Civil Defence, Bahrain and the UK (ARU). Over the course of two days, the events included a conference, one day of simulation exercises, along with poster presentations and theatrical moulage, performed by paramedic students of JUST.
