Expedition Medicine is the course for you who aim to work as an expedition doctor at high altitude. The course is very intense, with a focus on practical skills. Our goal is that anyone who passes this course will feel safe accepting an assignment as an expedition doctor. We have, simply put, boiled down the best from Advanced Wilderness Life Support and Diploma in Mountain Medicine to 3 full days based on our experience from expeditions around the globe.
The books Vildmarksmedicin - första hjälpen och sjukvård på tur och expedition (printed version, will be sent 4 weeks before the course) and Going high - Höghöjdsmedicin för entusiaster (e-book) are included in the price. You will receive a link after purchase.
