The CPR/Disaster Relief branch of TEAC aims to teach high quality CPR and BLS skills to all LKSOM students, as well as reinforce the important aspects of CPR and BLS skills on a yearly basis. In order to accomplish these goals, a team of students is trained to become CPR instructors. As part of the Doctoring curriculum, these students are responsible for providing CPR certification classes to first and rising third year medical students. Additionally, refresher courses are offered throughout the year for M2s, M4s, and others in the community who want to strengthen their CPR skills. Each year new CPR instructors are selected to continue this students-teaching-students model of education.
The Disaster Response team is responsible for preparing TEAC and LKSOM students to assist in the event of a local, national or international crisis. The Disaster Response team prepares students by organizing practical emergency skills trainings and disaster response education events. The Disaster Response team also serves as a liaison between the Temple Medical Reserve Corp and student body to coordinate disaster response programs in which students can participate.
