CPR Saturday at Michigan Medicine

On March 10, faculty and staff of the Office of Gradate Medical Education and Clinical Simulation Center hosted “CPR Saturday” for 86 students enrolled in the Wolverine Pathways program.

The students learned adult and infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), as well as automated external defibrillator (AED) practical skills, and were given the opportunity to become American Heart Association (AHA) basic life support (BLS) CPR certified. 

Upon completion of the course, the students met with house officer volunteers to learn about medical school and medical training.

Wolverine Pathways is a free, year-round program that partners the University of Michigan with families, schools, and the communities of Detroit, Southfield and Ypsilanti to provide learning experiences that help students succeed in school, college and future careers.
