Charles Sturt University third-year paramedicine students will complete their final clinical simulation exercise on Friday 23 September before they graduate at the end of 2022.

Lecturer in paramedicine in the Charles Sturt School of Nursing, Paramedicine and Healthcare Sciences Ms Georgina Pickering said up to 50 students will participate in a multi-casualty scenario which provides the students with the foundations for future clinical practice.

“The exercise requires the students to integrate and consolidate knowledge and skills developed in preceding subjects,” Ms Pickering said.

“This will be a road traffic accident scenario, and the students will need to demonstrate that they have clinical judgement and decision-making skills to apply to real-world situations.

“Other students will ‘act’ as the casualties for the clinical simulation scenario.”

“Approximately 40 to 50 students will be participating in some capacity, and all of the students are graduating this year apart from a few who are doing honours and will be graduating early next year.”


Such scenario exercises are a common feature of the Charles Sturt Bachelor of Paramedicine.

The Charles Sturt paramedicine graduates are in demand. 262 students graduated from Charles Sturt University in 2021 and the University expects a similar size cohort in 2022.

The event took place at 11am Friday 23 September in the car park outside the Clinic Simulation Centre (building 1455) at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst.
