New Immersive Experience! The Madison Ambulance Cadet Program

Interested in exploring emergency medicine, public health, or other careers in the medical field? Have you ever thought about becoming an EMT? The Madison Ambulance (MVAC) Cadet Program was just approved as an IMMX. This semester-long program provides Drew students with opportunities to help their community and to gain professional experience in emergency medical services and public safety. The Program provides capacity building for MVAC in that some students complete the Cadet Program then complete an EMT Certification Program and return to MVAC to become members of the Corps. MVAC will train the Cadets in CPR and Basic First Aid and provide them opportunities to explore a career or professional work in emergency medical services and the chance to develop related professional skills.

Students may complete the Cadet Program as an IMMX, a registered academic internship (which also provides IMMX credit), or in a volunteer capacity. The fall cohort will consist of three or four students; the Program will run each semester with varied cohort numbers depending on the capacity of MVAC.

To find out more, link to the program description  where you will also find application information. Applications will be accepted for this semester until the positions are filled. Direct any questions about the program to the Drew/MVAC Program Coordinator, Drew Junior Jamie Barbian at jbarbian@drew.edu, or the Center for Civic Engagement at engage@drew.edu.
