This conference provides 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits through the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and up to 22 FAWM Credits through the Wilderness Medical Society (WMS)- recognized for credit by global governing medical associations. This CME conference is exclusive, not only from its world-class faculty, but from the uniqueness of its venue - the Yellow Cedar Lodge: home to Northern Escape Heli-Skiing/Boarding - one of North America's top ski destinations. The site features include a relaxed meeting space, gourmet meals and executive accommodations. Only fifteen spots remain for privileged guests to enjoy four days of educational time paired with powder-filled adventures in the Skeena Mountain Range; a two hour Air Canada flight north of Vancouver.
The tuition fee is $645(+5% tax) combined with an optional five day heli-ski/boarding experience for $4999(+5% tax)- prices listed in Canadian dollars a significant advantage for US and European delegates. Price includes four nightâ€™s accommodation, all meals, guiding service, powder ski/transceiver rental, four days of heli-skiing/boarding.
The curriculum has been developed to provide a therapeutic update in emergency medicine specific for the unique clinical situations found in wilderness settings. Tracks include backcountry critical care, high altitude medicine, hypothermia, wilderness orthopedics and mountain-rescue ethics. Physicians will also be working with trained guides in avalanche terrain â€“ learning and practicing scene assessment, safe travel in hazardous conditions and search and rescue techniques - taking education beyond the classroom.
