His favorite quote :
« A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.. »

Over 30 years of history
FOUNDING OF SIRIUS WILDERNESS MEDICINE
Founded by Bob Washer in the early 1990s, Sirius Wilderness Medicine quickly filled a gap in first aid training for outdoor enthusiasts and workers in remote areas. Its comprehensive, experiential learning approach sets it apart from other programs. Sirius was present at the first World Congress on Remote Medicine in 1991.
INDUSTRY RECOGNITION OF SIRIUS TRAINING
Already in the late 90's, Sirius participated in the birth of the Quebec Ecotourism Association and in the development of safety standards for the emerging adventure tourism industry. Throughout the 2000's, SIRIUS has trained the majority of outdoor professionals in Quebec through its partnerships with various educational institutions offering outdoor programs across Canada.
START OF MEDICAL SERVICES AT SIRIUS
Already in 2005, Sirius has made its mark in the natural resources industry by joining PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada) and offering training programs to explorers, geologists and other workers in remote areas. It was a natural progression to offer first aid and medical services on remote industrial sites. Since then, Sirius has worked with most mining companies on exploration projects in the most remote areas of Canada. Sirius has also been involved in numerous decontamination projects on the former DEW line radar stations.
NEW Administration !
With the growth of it’s medical service offering, Dr. Marc Gosselin joined Sirius in 2013. A few years later Bob Washer passed the torch to him to lead SIRIUS and continue its expansion. It was in December 2017 that SIRIUS changed its administration. It is in partnership with Bruno Basset, president of Dokever and allied by a common passion that the new team begins the transition of Sirius.
SIRIUS WILDERNESS MEDICINE BECOMES SIRIUSMEDX
Sirius continues to evolve and change its image based on the solid foundations of the last thirty years. Our new brand image reflects our new multidisciplinary reality. In addition to our flagship programs for in wilderness first aid, we are adding more specialized services in medical support, medical training, telemedicine and risk management in remote and isolated environments. Our new name, SIRIUSMEDx, captures all of these facets.
MISSION AND VISION FOR THE FUTURE
This maturity leads us to clarify our mission and vision for the future of SIRIUSMEDx, which is to revolutionize the delivery of medical care and training programs to safeguard the health of workers, residents and explorers in the most remote regions of the world. Whether it's improving the quality of medical care through greater use of telemedicine, collaborating with First Nations to create customized training programs, or developing first aid and advanced medical care training programs specific to remote environments, every action and decision we take is directed toward achieving this mission.
