Category I CME: 36 hours

WALS® is wilderness advanced life support training for medical professionals. We focus on the procedures and technologies that are the most appropriate for extreme environments and the extended-care context. Time is also devoted to hands-on training and the general principles of wilderness and rescue medicine. Now in its 16th year, the WALS program is constantly evolving and participants are encouraged to discuss new and controversial material, perspectives, and techniques. For the experienced practitioner WALS provides a well-rounded exposure to the challenge of providing advanced medical care in a difficult environment. You can look forward to a fun and stimulating four days. The course is open to physicians, PA’s, NP’s, RN’s, and experienced paramedics. Medical students and other medical providers will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
