Jr. Medics

Offer your students the opportunity to learn first aid for free!

Learning First Aid Begins With Us

Jr. Medics is a community outreach initiative run by medical students that aims to teach the basics of first aid to students from grade 1 to grade 8 in the Ottawa region. Our workshops focus on injury prevention, emergency response, and on the introduction of various health care careers.

Our workshops are free and are led by volunteer medical students. We utilize interactive teaching methods to engage the young students we train including simulated situations of incidents involving cuts, allergic reactions, burns, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
