Dear Princeton University Pre-Professional Services,

We are MedicZero Inc., a newly formed non-profit organization with the purpose of creating a community of passionate individuals interested in emergency medicine and prehospital care. We seek to enable bystanders with the confidence to recognize emergencies and initiate care, encourage the delivery of skillful, evidence-based care by providers, and construct community paramedicine initiatives to improve the prehospital landscape.

MedicZero strives to make an impact in the implementation of emergency care throughout the United States by creating and managing a network of affiliated chapters at various universities throughout the country, with goals parallel to that of our organization. Specifically, we envision a chapter to foster a community of students passionate about EMS by hosting regular journal clubs, coordinating basic hands-only CPR / first-aid training in the local community or on-campus, and promoting evidence-based practices among providers.

In order to establish a chapter of our organization at your university, we are seeking two chapter directors! I am emailing to request if this opportunity can be shared with the students that are currently on the pre-health student mailing list. Attached below is a chapter manual, which outlines our organization’s goals and the steps to start a chapter, for the students to review. Additionally, if students are interested in this opportunity, please let them know to contact us at officers@mediczero.org
