Applying for Fellowship to Paramedics Australasia
The Board of Paramedics Australasia has the role to determine Fellowship.
PA Members wishing to advance, or to nominate someone to the status of Fellow are initially required to meet criteria set by the Board to establish their eligibility to undertake the elevation process.
A rating system has been developed to provide objective measurement of eligibility.
The Board has recognised that paramedicine personnel develop their careers in a variety of ways. To this extent the Board has recognised four criteria as the basis for evaluation in regard to advancement. A scoring system has been developed for each criteria. Members are required to draw a score from three of the four criteria, and must attain a minimum score of 50% to be eligible for the process of elevation to Fellow within PA. The criteria are provided in the application form available below.
