Austere Medicine: Trauma Focus

This online course consists of 12 weeks of lectures that take the student through both orthodox and herbal medicine in a remote or post-disaster environment where care may include wilderness first aid, emergency medicine, minor surgery, post-operative surgical care, wound and infection management and more.  The medical focus of this course is “doing more with less.” The online portion can be taken separately if desired. Our 3-day Wilderness First Aid certification is a required prerequisite for those without a background in emergency medicine.

The online lectures and material include:

  • Anatomy and Physiology – Trauma-related anatomy and physiology of the head, torso, pelvis and extremities
  •  Cellular homeostasis
  •  Fluid balance and resuscitation
  • Shock
  • Blood loss, blood salvage & resuscitation
