Course Information below:

PE: INTRODUCTION TO MEDICAL SCIENCE 11

Prerequisite: None

The ‘Introduction to Medical Science 11’ curriculum enables students to complete their Canadian Red Cross Standard First Aid (SFA) with ‘CPR-C’ and First Responders (FR) with CPR-BLS Certifications, through a full year course.

The Canadian Red Cross First Responder Program provides our students with advanced first aid and pre-hospital care training. This curriculum is hands-on, challenging, and provocative. It is designed to give students knowledge, practical skills, and an opportunity to complete the program with professional certification(s). The professional certification(s) that the students receive enable them to volunteer their services as ‘on site medical assistants’ within our school, as well as at ‘outside community events’.

Content:

  • Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathophysiology
  • Patient Assessment
  • Airway Management and Respiratory Emergencies
  • Circulatory Emergencies
  • Shock
  • Hemorrhage and Soft Tissue Trauma
  • Musculoskeletal Injuries
  • Head and Spinal Injuries
  • Etc.

‘CPR-C’ is required when applying to any post-secondary health care program (such as nursing, dentistry, etc.). This course provides students with a competitive advantage when seeking to pursue professional training in medicine, or other health related programs.

The cost associated with this level of training (SFA, CPR-C, and FR) is significantly reduced, when compared to completing the same certifications at a post-secondary or specific training institution.

Course Fee: $375.00. Cost of the course covers the following items:

  • Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR & Emergency Care Textbooks
  • Certifications
  • Medical Supplies/Equipment
  • Lab costs
