EDICINE ON AN
These exciting new courses are designed to offer a high-quality wilderness medicine educational
experience in the context of an outdoor adventure. The combination of small group size, outstand-
ing faculty, and more "hands-on" learning make these courses an excellent choice for health
professionals who enjoy adventure travel.
The hands-on way to learn wilderness medicine and outdoor skills
These courses are a logical "next-step" for health professionals who want to become more
confident and competent in their wilderness medical skills. Practical outdoor skills such as
navigation, survival, and backcountry travel are taught along with medicine -- making the
courses a little like an "outward bound" experience.
Faculty interaction and small group comraderie
The hallmark of these outings is small group camaraderie, meaningful contact with local people,
personal attention from your expert resident Trip Leader, and close interaction with faculty. By
the end of the trip, most of you will become good friends.
