Lake Tahoe, CA HYBRID

October 2 - October 3

Wilderness Medicine CME – Lake Tahoe, CA

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 6,000 feet, Lake Tahoe offers a spectacular alpine setting for outdoor recreation. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America and is over 1,600 feet deep and surrounded by dense evergreen forests.

The course will be hosted at the beautiful North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach, CA (www.northtahoeevents.com). The venue sits, literally, on the sand and boasts stunning views of the surrounding lake and mountains. There are a number of lodging choices in the Lake Tahoe Region from luxury Inns to camping. There are many hidden gems in the region.

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 lake 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.
