Wilderness Medicine Conference CME
Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada
Fall Conference - Sept 19 - 21, 2014
Join Us for our 5th Annual WildER Med Conference
Improve your skills in identification, assessment, and treatment of patients with a number of common, yet potentially challenging problems in Wilderness Medicine. Work in interdisciplinary teams while practicing, acquiring or improving your navigational and survival skills. Put your new knowledge and skills to the test when you race in your teams through maple forest terrain to find your moulage victims. Teams will be expected on race day to assess, stabilize and prepare for transport their "patients" at each of 5 sites.
Who Should Attend
This course offers a great learning experience for a variety of professionals involved in Wilderness Medicine. We welcome medical students, residents & physicians, outdoor leaders, nurses, physiotherapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, search & rescue personnel, fire fighter and first responders. There are only 30 participants each year - so don't leave your registration too late.
