About Mark Carroll

I joined Teesside University in 2010 as a Senior Lecturer in the Paramedic Studies Team after a successful career in the Nursing & Paramedic professions as a Registered Adult Nurse and Paramedic.  Having left school in 1987 to follow an early career in administrative roles within regional building society's I found my passion for healthcare in 1996 when I began studying Adult Nursing where I completed a Diploma in Higher Education/Registered Adult Nursing.  I realised my passion was for out of hospital care and left nursing to pursue a career in pre-hospital/out of hospital care and joined the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) as an Advanced Technician in 2001. I went on to qualify as a Paramedic in 2003; Team Leader in 2006; a brief move into management as the trust's Clinical Practice Manager before returning to the 'road' as it was called and I got my taste for education and training.  A role came available in the Trust’s education centre and after a year as a Clinical Education & Development I was promoted to the role of Education Lead for NEAS working closely with Teesside University.  An opportunity came in 2010 to work as a Senior Lecturer with Teesside University in the Paramedic team I successfully applied and have never looked back since.  I have been instrumental in further enhancing the education of Paramedics as the profession moved rapidly towards an all graduate profession.  I have experience of a wider range of roles within the team from module leader to placements coordinator and Programme Leader for our very successful BSc (Hons) Paramedic Practice Programme.

Academically I hold a Masters Degree and have completed my PgCE in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education and am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.  I have a number of published articles ranging from my keen interest in social media to more formal academic publications including a systematic review which questioned whether or not relatives should be routinely present at a cardiac arrest.
