FRIP Level 1 Workshop

Overview
FRIP Level 1 Workshops are designed to impart basic life saving knowledge and skills to medical students and young doctors free of cost. These workshops comprise of an extensively-researched curriculum based on current Basic Life Saving Skills (BLS) & Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) protocols, as well as instruction on emergency topics not included in these protocols. In our Level 1 Workshops, we not only teach life saving skills but also provide each participant ample amount of time, resources and supervision to perform and practice these skills. The aim of the FRIP Level 1 Workshops is to add members to the FRIP Mass Disaster Task Force (MDTF) and to further train the general population in handling and responding to emergency situations.
