Who are MedVents?
- The program started as a section in the Vocational Scouting program at Scouts Canada. The program later became the known as the Themed Scouting program.
- Each group has it's own local sponsor which is typically the local paramedic or regional EMS (Emergency Medical Service) department.
The purpose of the Medical Venturer program is to introduce youths to the medical field, provide the youth an opportunity to determine their potential and desire in first aid.
The first link in the chain of survival is first aid. The MedVent program allows youths work closely with various people whose chosen career is in the Medical field. With the aid of their sponsors, many MedVent groups provides the youth an introduction in the operations of a para-medicine organization.
