What We Do

CIMRO’s founders, Dr. Jay Dahman and Paramedic Mark Cameron, have created an organization that strives to engage healthcare professionals towards a greater future. CIMRO believes that medical education is fundamental to shaping the future of healthcare in Canada and especially in developing nations. Therefore, it is our obligation and duty to create a positive change in this process. We offer courses such as Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), TNCC, disaster response, combat medicine response and numerous other critical health care courses to healthcare professionals and students. Our goal is to improve quality of patient care for all. CIMRO teaches extensively outside of Canada in places such as Guyana,Turkey, the UK, China, the Middle east, the United States and many other places to healthcare professionals. Our expert level educators are committed to providing high quality medical education. All our educators have many years of experience in the healthcare setting as physicians, registered nurses and paramedics. Our teams are multidisciplinary, as many of our members have extensive field and international levels of experience. CIMRO believes in collaboration! We have affiliations with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in medical education, as well as with other international programs of excellence and numerous international NGO’s. Many of our staff were educational leads in other organizations, such as The Michener Institute, Humber College, Centennial College, Durham College, Humber River Hospital and the Canadian Forces, before joining the CIMRO team. CIMRO exceeds the standards of any program currently operating in the marketplace today. Our vision is ‘healthcare for all’.
