Big Sur, CA HYBRID

April 30 - May 1

Wilderness Medicine CME – Big Sur, CA

Big Sur is one of the unspoiled treasures of California. Located on the magnificent Central California Coast high above the Pacific Ocean, Big Sur is the quaint and sparsely populated area where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the sea. The coastline offers some of the most resplendent views in the state.

Course Description:

➢ Earn your Advanced Wilderness Life Support certification
➢ Learn the latest practical hands-on wilderness medicine skills for patient assessment, treatment and evacuation protocols
➢ Practice your skills in live scenarios with our expert instructors
➢ Obtain up to 24.5 hours of category 1 CME*
➢ Receive Wilderness Medical Society Fellowship credits

The AWLS Hybrid curriculum consists of:

❖ Patient assessment
❖ Trauma
❖ Medical problems
❖ Infectious disease
❖ Head, Ear, Eye, Nose, Throat, Skin
❖ Animal & insect Bites
❖ Musculoskeletal injuries
❖ Wound management
❖ Water treatment
❖ Hyperthermia, hypothermia & frostbite
❖ Medical kits
❖ Lightning
❖ HAPE/HACE
❖ Dive Medicine

The AWLS Hybrid course is an exciting new format for us. Following completion of Online Modules to cover the didactic portion of the AWLS curriculum, students will meet in person for the practical skills component. Following an opportunity to review questions from the modules, we will dive into practical skills and wilderness victim scenarios. This means the two days on the coast will be spent almost entirely outside doing hands-on practical skills.

CME Credit:

With the Advanced Wilderness Life Support certification students earn 24.5 hours of Category 1 CME, as well as Wilderness Medical Society Fellowship credit.

Lodging:

There are a number of lodging choices in Big Sur from luxury Inns to camping. Students have had success in the last with the Big Sur Rive Inn, Fernwood Resort, Ventana Lodge and Big Sur Lodge. For complete accommodation information, click here.
