Austere Medicine: Trauma – 2019

The Austere Medicine program is an introduction to the most vital aspects of medicine in a post-disaster or austere environment and integrates western emergency medicine, sports medicine, wilderness first aid and botanical (herbal) medicine. This is a five-day intensive course held at our San Antonio campus, preceded by a required 12-week online course and 3-day WFA. This course is taught by Dr. Steve Pehrson, M.D., and Sam Coffman.

The online topics include:

The on-campus portion of the Austere Medicine I program runs for 5 information- and action-packed days.

These 5 days start by putting hands-on practice at the forefront wherever possible. Taking the online, didactic information to the next level and introducing physical techniques is the primary goal.  Subjects during the on-campus, 5-day intensive include:
