OEC is a high school program that teaches junior and senior high school students emergency medical skills. The year-long series of classes cover First Aid, CPR, Responding to Emergencies, First Responder, CPR instructor, and EMT certifications. These classes are available to all students, both those within the district and from outside. Classes are two hours long and build on each other throughout the year. These classes will challenge students, giving them much needed experience if they are headed into the medical world. It is also a great way to test and see if you are interested in the medical field.
OEC is part of Osseo's Health Science Magnet Program. As part of this program, Osseo also offers Human Med science classes, Bioethics, Human Med Health, Certified Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide, and Pharmacy Technician (online).
The OEC program includes unique, intensive opportunities including Fall and Spring camps, State Competition, and providing training and medic coverage for outside groups. For learn all about OEC, please check our About page.

Laura Siepmann and Abby Bishop (Osseo Senior High students) paired with Amanda Harris and Nolan Miles (of Maple Grove Senior High) took first place at the 27thAnnual OEC Emergency Care State Competition held Saturday, February 23rd, 2013 at Osseo Senior High School. Twenty-eight teams, representing 13 metro-area schools, competed to hold the title of Emergency Care Champion of Minnesota. Opportunities in Emergency Health Care (OEC) students from throughout the state were challenged academically and physically through a series of well-controlled accident scenarios. To passersby it may have seemed that Osseo Senior experienced a series of catastrophic mishaps. There were simulated crush injuries, fractured bones, arterial bleeds, thermal burns, as well as seizures, hypovolemic shock, and even cardiac arrest.
The first scenario challenged responders with a simulated power-outage, forcing them to treat the victim trapped in a construction accident lit only by flashlights; they faced an additional challenge when the victim went into cardiac arrest upon being freed from the debris. Next, the teams were called to the woodshop classroom to a simulated situation of a student who had amputated his hand and cut his leg. In a rush to help, another student slipped and started seizing after hitting her head. In the final scenario, the teams were called to a simulated RV sales lot where a diabetic emergency with altered mental status turned a routine engine inspection into an electrical shortage and explosion. Each scenario evaluated the responder’s problem solving and treatment skills.
The team added to Osseo OEC’s legacy of achievements with their first place finish. They will have the opportunity to defend their title at the International Rescue and Emergency Care Association (IRECA) Championship which is being held in Boise, Idaho in June. The task won’t come easy – among the students competing are Riley Nortrom and Bret Denker, OSH Seniors and defending 2012 IRECA champs. OEC would like to give a big thanks to all the volunteers and community supporters who helped make this event a success. Congratulations to all participants and good luck in the events to come!
