General resources for medics and for anyone putting together a binder for a Basic Street Medic Training

This is certainly not an all-inclusive list of resources, but here are some that I like to hand out at street medic trainings.

Contact me if you have questions about any of these articles, or if you have articles that you'd like to add!

La lucha sigue,

If you have limited copying resources, you can also just hand out the training outline. Contact me (Eowyn) for the outline text.

Note: All of the articles and resources listed below are in Portable Document Format (PDF). You must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer in order to read and print these documents. You can get the free Acrobat Reader at

Articles and Handouts for Basic Street Medic Training Binders

This is the more complete version of the binder contents (though there are always more things to add...) It is a long list of articles, and many folks won't have the time, money, or desire to distribute all this info during a street medic training. Check with the trainers about what articles they think are especially important. Also, in place of printing out these articles, you can refer folks to this page and they can print out what they want (assuming they have access and comfort with the internet, as well as the capacity to print lots of pages).

    • Training outline (available from Eowyn)
    • Skills list
    • List of acronyms and medical terms (a work in progress - available from Eowyn)
    • Upcoming events (this is usually specific to your area, and includes any upcoming political events, demos or other actions)

  1. Medical Information

  2. History and Philosophy

  3. Medic Logistics

  4. Handouts for Activists

    (Many of these are in double-sided format, with more than one full handoutout per page, so they can be copied, cut up, and handed out)
  5. Trauma and Stress

  6. State Repression

  7. Anti-Oppression

  8. Resources
