Brandeis Emergency Medical Corps (BEMCo)

<p>Does anyone have any experience in this organization? Or have any idea how much time a week you have to dedicate to BEMCo?</p>

<p>I have no personal experience with it, although I know some people who did it and had a few interactions with Bemco myself. My sense is that it is a serious commitment, but so are most clubs at Brandeis if you commit yourself, whether you need to go to rehearsals for a play during the so-called tech week every night, going to long meetings for the student government or other clubs, or writing many articles for the student newspaper. My understanding of Bemco is that at least as a new member, you choose one day a month or so where you are on call about 24 hours (probably as a tertiary responder). Then during those 24 hours, you go about your business, unless a call comes in. One limitation is that you have to be on a certain campus perimeter.
Here's the link to the Bemco website (warning, it plays some music and I had the experience at one point that it caused issues for my browser, though it seems fine right now)

<p>Thanks so much for the reply! It was exactly what I was looking for because I was under the assumption you'd need to have a 24-hour shift every week or something :|</p>
