Course Description

Mountain Medicine was designed based on our founders' knowledge from many years of experiences in high-alpine environments across five continents. This course was specifically tailored to address the unique challenges of high-alpine environments.

The final exercise is designed to challenge and test the confidence of participants in performing mountain medicine.

*Please note: This is not a wilderness medicine course; rather, it provides medical practitioners with practical tools and knowledge backed up by evidence-based medicine to deal with various unique challenges of medicine in the mountains. The course has two tracks, one for the basic life support personnel and one for the advanced life support personnel.
