Prepare for the unexpected with this fun, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine, taught over the course of two to two and a half days. If you enjoy weekend outdoor activities, work at a summer camp, or spend any time in the wilderness, this course is for you!
This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response can be expected in a timely manner (fewer than 8 hours). You’ll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.
You’ll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments!
