Paramedic Lecturer

Rachael Hosznyak

Paramedic Lecturer, Birmingham City University

Rachael is a paramedic with over fifteen years’ experience of pre-hospital practice. She joined the NHS in 2003, after a career in the private sector, and spent her early career working as an emergency medical technician in South Devon.  She remained in South Devon upon completing paramedic training, and later undertook post-registration training with Plymouth University to develop practitioner competencies (which align to the Skills for Health ECP framework).  Her career then moved into leadership and management, taking up various officer and management positions within the local Ambulance Service, whilst practicing as a Specialist Paramedic.

With a commitment to developing others, and having completed a BSc in Health Studies, Graduate Diploma in Emergency Care and Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice, Rachael moved in to academia in 2011 as a lecturer with Plymouth University and more recently a Senior Lecturer and Programme Director in Paramedic Education with Birmingham City University. To maintain currency, Rachael also continues to practise with South Western Ambulance Service and Events Medical Services as a Specialist Paramedic.

Rachael is currently engaging in PHD research into ‘Ocular nerve sheath ultrasound and impedance threshold therapy in the assessment and management of increased intracranial pressure in pre-hospital medicine’.
