This program gives you a 360 degree view of the medical and healthcare field through immersive learning and hands-on projects. In the first week, students will learn how to take vital signs and perform CPR. They will also work on key wilderness medicine techniques and visit a simulation lab where med students and faculty are trained and evaluated. In the second week, students put their skills to the test in a mass casualty incident simulation during which students triage and stabilize victims. By using an experiential learning approach, students will quickly engage in these topics, and the instructor introduces the underlying theory and concepts as students tackle issues while working to support, diagnose, and save their patients.
Topics you'll explore
Learn basic medical skills and get training on how to handle situations when medical care is not immediately available. Simulations will allow you to learn and practice hands-on medical techniques including positioning and extraction, wound care, control of bleeding, stitches and sutures, usage of splints and slings, and other useful potentially life-saving skills. In small groups, your medical team will be required to research the patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on your findings, and develop a treatment plan.
