Medical Center Campus and Mexican Red Cross partner on training
Miami Dade College’s Medical Center Campus will soon play a role in enhancing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) throughout Mexico.
Through a new collaborative agreement with the Cruz Roja Mexicana (Mexican Red Cross), MDC will help train Mexican rescue workers following the EMS model used in the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County.
MDC Provost, Dr. Rolando Montoya and Daniel Goñi Díaz, president of the National Board of Directors of the Mexican Red Cross, officiated the agreement. Medical Center Campus President Dr. Anita Kaplan was also present for the signing.
As part of the collaborative partnership, Medical Center Campus’ EMS program’s faculty and staff will share program curricula, emerging pre-hospital technology and education enhancements associated with the training of students in a pre-hospital setting. The training will also incorporate classes, conferences and cross-training opportunities.
The Mexican Red Cross serves as the primary provider and trainer of emergency medical services in Mexico.
