Professional accreditation of paramedic entry-level programs at universities in Australia and New Zealand assures the public of the quality of those programs. It promotes improvement, supports innovation, guides curriculum development, and supports novice academics. Professional accreditation contributed to the development of paramedicine as a profession in Australia. It aligns Australian paramedics with other regulated health professions; defines paramedic graduate attributes; and enables graduates from accredited university programs to apply for registration with the Paramedicine Board of Australia.
