Zion, UT HYBRID

November 13, 9:00 am - November 14, 6:00 pm

Wilderness Medicine CME – Zion, UT

Join us in Zion during one of the best times of the year for an exciting AWLS Hybrid course! Located in Washington, Iron, and Kane Counties in southwestern Utah, Zion National Park encompasses some of the most scenic canyon country in the United States. Within its 232 square miles are high plateaus, a maze of narrow, deep, sandstone canyons, and the Virgin River and its tributaries.

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 in the desert will be spent almost entirely outside doing hands-on practical skills.

Less time in class means more time to play and explore Zion National Park! World-class hiking, climbing, and canyoneering can be found in and around Zion, and following your AWLS course, you will be prepared for anything Zion has to throw at you!

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.
