Develop Leadership Skills + Build Your Resume
with hands-on Medical Experience
When I was in high school and college, getting volunteer hours seems like another task to check off… until I found my passion in teaching. It is because of my experience in teaching in Emergency Medical Service (EMS), including CPR, First Aid and public health topics that I realize this is an amazing opportunity for any students looking in the medicine/healthcare professional school.
We Teach so You Teach
Normally to teach CPR, you should be a minimum of as an EMT or nurse. So in this volunteer program, you will not only learn how to teach but also learn more about the science behind emergency medicine, hands-on practices, and training on how to become an awesome American Heart Association CPR & First Aid instructor. While this volunteer opportunity does not require any experience, we do require you commit your effort and time until the end of the duration.
Make an Impact
Do you know why colleges and graduate schools require volunteer experience? One of the reason is that it builds character. This is one of our core tenants– to build future leaders. You will gain leadership experience in public speaking, working with other healthcare professionals, responsibility, paperwork compliance, conflict resolutions, and most of all, make an impact in your community.
