Graduates of Emergency Medical Care Studies are prepared to perform medical emergency treatment in life-and health-threatening situations. They deal with diagnostics and patient treatment as members of emergency response teams and in hospital wards. In the course of their studies, students acquire medical skills and didactic and managerial skills in the area of healthcare management. Graduates of Emergency Medical Care Studies are prepared to conduct research activity and to find employment on the competitive labour market. This field of study also possesses a professional and systematically expanding training base. Medical simulations use the ALS manikins: MegaCode Kelly, MegaCode Kid, ALS Baby (Laerdal) controlled by a wireless SimPad system, as well as a baby manikin -PEDI Blue Neonatal Simulator (Gaumard) and a hybrid birthing simulator MamaNathalie. The new Centre for Medical Simulation is equipped with HD cameras, ECT Fusion (KbPort) debriefing system, as well as specialist medical rescue equipment, including: defibrillators (Lifepak 12 with a ShockLink system, Binz), cardiac monitors, life-support machines (AmbuMatic, Oxylog Draeger), EMMA Emergency Capnometer and many others, thanks to which students can easily master emergency medical care activities. Practical training is conducted using the training base of hospital wards. Emergency Medical Care students use the training ambulance of the Medical Faculty at PWSZ in Kalisz, in order to organize presentations and conduct medical rescue training in schools and other institutions. They also participate in scientific conferences and publish their research papers in scientific journals. While competing with professional medical rescue teams, our students were fourth in the Polish national rally- Rescue Trophy Extreme 2013, and second in the Kalisz District Medical Rescue Championships in 2014.
