Wilderness Medicine Class

Wilderness Medicine
Emergency Management in the High-Risk Low-Resource Environment

October 6-8, 2017
Murphy, NC

By definition, “wilderness” is based on the concepts of emergency care when separated from definitive care by distance, time, or circumstance. That situation could easily be the backcountry, another snowpocalypse, civil unrest, or an active shooter incident; all situations in which medical help may not be readily available.

Wilderness Medicine is training in emergency medicine for people who aren’t professionals and forms the basis for our tactical medic program. The training consists of an informal meet and greet on Friday evening followed by two days of lecture, discussion, hands-on and scenario-based practice of skills.

Our goal is to provide you with an assessment process that is simple, easy to understand, and one that does not require you to purchase everything from an ER catalog. Rather, the class provides you with a roadmap to address life-threatening injuries in the proper order and one that ensures the best possible outcome for yourself and your patient.

All courses are taught by professional educators and experienced medical providers who will work to make sure that you leave class with the information and skills needed to react with confidence. Learn to respond to medical emergencies, treat injuries and illnesses, and improvise solutions in a high-risk low-resource environment.

The cost of the course is $200 and advanced, full-payment is required to reserve a seat in class. Due to limited class enrollment, payment is non-refundable. Rescheduling will be allowed for the next available class only if space is available. Cancellation on the day of the class is considered a “no show.”
