Advanced EM Workshops
Globalization has increased the ease of remote travel, the popularity of backcountry sports, the incidence of natural disasters due to climate change, and the need for humanitarian response to those disasters — leading to rising incidences of improvised medical care, which is the hallmark of wilderness medicine. Emergency physicians are uniquely equipped to provide this improvised medical care; consequently, wilderness medicine has become a robust academic subspecialty of emergency medicine. Participants in this workshop will be instructed on the fundamentals of wilderness medicine so they can effectively teach the subspecialty as well as provide care outside of an emergency department.
