I am currently a grade 11 student at an Ontario secondary school with an interest in Pre-Hospital Medicine. I am trying to figure out a way to get into the field.

I have a fellow student who is currently doing a co-operative education placement with a paramedic service within the province. Would this be the best way to get into the field (once I turn 18)?

I have done some research on some training, and have found the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) program through the Canadian Red Cross. I have researched the program and have found it meets the National Occupational Competency Profile for Emergency Medical Responder set by the Paramedic Association of Canada. Would this also be a good place to start?

Any help is appreciated!


Thank you,
