Mr Jon Green
Lecturer in Paramedic Science
School of Health Professions (Faculty of Health: Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences)
Jon joined the Paramedic team in April 2019. He is a practicing paramedic with a specialism in clinical research. He is leading the ‘Introduction to Paramedic Science’ module (BSc Paramedic Science) as well as contributing to other undergraduate and master's level modules. Jon is the nominated research lead for paramedicine, supporting high quality student research. He is also ambitious to support the development of the University of Plymouth as a leading centre for prehospital research.
Since studying psychology and briefly working in mental health, Jon has accumulated 19 years of front-line ambulance experience, across the Southwest of England.
