Currently, the majority of wilderness medicine courses do not teach the application of the taught skills in the actual environment where they would be applied. And many current CME courses hold â€œworkshopsâ€ that may actually be elongated lectures, without hands-on clinical skill building. This feedback comes from personal discussions while running lectures and workshops at various CME venues the last several years. â€œWilderness Medicine Update for the Backcountryâ€ is unique in that the course venue can act as a virtual â€œfifth faculty member,â€ and the high alpine backcountry of Terrace, BC Canada can offer hands-on teaching that is unprecedented, to the best of our knowledge, in the current CME courses being offered.
This conference offers physicians 22 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). The accredited curriculum is paired with four days of workshops and backcountry powder adventures.
