The Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician course seamlessly blends urban and wilderness medicine.
The course will build upon the advanced knowledge of patient care of the EMT and will introduce wilderness protocols and procedures that are significantly different from those taught in urban settings due to the element of time and therefore extended patient contact time and care.
