Application/Key learning points: Both Finland and England have well-developed EMS and paramedic programmes compared to world standards. The findings in EMS show the greatest difference in the service provision and emergency handling models. In the paramedic programmes (advanced EMS), the approaches used in the two countries were completely different. For example, in the Finnish model, paramedic education and training were integrated into nursing studies, which led to a full nursing degree. In the British model, however, paramedic education and training kept to paramedic studies, leading to registration as a paramedic. The study enabled and facilitated better student exchange between the two countries.
