Canadian Reserves as a Medical Assistant?
Hey there, i just wanted to ask if anybody had some information on the Canadian Reserves, specifically as a Medical Assistant. Do you think it would be difficulty to do while going to school full time (major is Bio-medicine), and is it really voluntary to get to places?

What do you mean by get places? Normally Reservists have to volunteer for deployments. That is not to say there couldn't be a situation where they could get orders to deploy. Even infantry members that wanted to serve in Afghanistan volunteered for it.
Depending on the course load and work you have to do outside of class it maybe hard to balance both. Although most units understand the job is part time an education or full time employment come first you can't use that as an excuse to not go in on parade/training nights.
You are expected to honor your oath and train as they have the schedule set.Source(s): Former member Canadian Army Reserve Infantry
