Student Medical Response

Started in 2014, The University of Calgary’s Student Medical Response (SMR) is comprised of motivated, professional, and skilled students with backgrounds as first responders, paramedics, firefighters, lifeguards, nursing students, and medical students. SMR is a 100% student volunteer run and organized team with the goal of providing qualified, and skilled pre-hospital emergency medical care to eligible University of Calgary community events.
