As the President of Paramedics Australasia, I am very proud to lead the peak representative body for paramedics across Australasia. Our key roles are to assist the growth and development of paramedics as well as offer a unified voice for paramedics in Australasia. The role of paramedics has changed dramatically over the years and will continue to do so in the coming years.

PA is a key partner in thousands of paramedic careers and could be in yours as well. As our membership grows, so does our influence over the government, in particular with regards to the creation of national registration. I hope you will take the time to consider the real benefits of becoming a PA member.

Peter Hartley

I live and work in Rural Tasmania but PA keeps me in touch with what’s happening in Paramedicine across Australasia. As a Board Director I am now able to share the perspective of rural and remote paramedics.

Intensive Care Paramedic

As a member for 25 years, I have seen PA develop & mature through its various iterations (Institute, ACAP & now PA). Over this time, it has afforded me the opportunity to establish valuable and enduring professional relationships. As paramedics move towards registration, a robust & committed professional organization like PA representing the interests of the profession will become an additional critical role.

For me, membership of PA is a huge contributor to my continuing professional development, and particularly important now that student life is behind me.
