Depending on the location, the provision of treatment and transport of patients suffering a medical emergency can fall to paramedics, nurse or doctors. In the out-of-hospital setting, the clinical role is in stabilising and/or improving the patient's condition in preparation for, and during transportation to hospital.

Courses within this area of study support students to improve their clinical practice and knowledge related to the delivery of emergency health services, while also preparing them for leadership positions.

The field of emergency health encompasses clinical practice areas of relevance to other health professionals, including nurses and doctors who practice within or have an interest in aeromedical retrieval, emergency preparedness and disaster health.
