Travel Medicine First Aid Course


This is a travel medicine course built over a wilderness first aid chassis. There are a number of full lectures reinforced by Patient Assessment System drills and debriefs. All scenarios will be internationally based (as opposed to wilderness activity based) and will include attendant decision making for accessing available medical care. Besides basic life support and CPR, the curriculum includes some advanced scope of practice protocols: cessation of CPR after 30 minutes, and the administration of epinephrine for anaphylaxis. Certifications awarded by Wilderness Medical Associates, USA (WMA).
