Expedition Medicine (EM)
This is a 54 hour course specifically designed for licensed medical practitioners (MD, PA, RN, DNP & DO) who aspire to become primary medical personnel on wilderness expeditions. The Expedition Medicine course builds off of existing knowledge and teaches medical professionals how to proactively manage, assess, and treat patient conditions in remote locations with limited equipment, and resources. Emphasis in this course is placed on the ability to organize resources, lead groups, and direct rescue and evacuation efforts while maintaining a superior level of patient care. In order to adequately prepare participants for expeditions medicine, this course takes place entirely in the field.
