Would you like to train lifesavers, inspire the next generation of medics, or simply be involved in an organisation that provides free first aid training to developing countries? Then, this is for you, read on!
We are looking for enthusiastic clinical medical students to volunteer with us as course assistants on our novel first aid course. The MEDICS™ Sim course (Medical Emergencies, Defibrillation and Introduction to Clinical Skills) ™ is a BLS and clinical skills course for secondary school students which covers cardiac arrests, anaphylaxis, choking, automated external defibrillation as well as clinical skills used in resuscitation in the afternoon.
Volunteer course assistants are not required to deliver BLS lectures but are needed to help with registration, clinical skills stations, facilitate scenarios and group discussions for the students. Each course is small, with maximum of 20 participants and about 2- 3 volunteers are needed per session
