This course is taught by an Emergency Medicine Physician with multiple wartime deployments and a former Military Medic. They use their experience both in combat and work in urban trauma centers to teach the latest guidelines for care of injuries in the field. This two day class covers both the medical tactics and skills of care under fire, and more prolonged care of injuries in isolated conditions. The first day and a half include classroom lectures and hands on practice, followed by live fire range time to prepare students for active shooter situations.
While there are no medical prerequisites for this course, nurses, paramedics, and physicians as well as lay students have found it to be unique and rewarding.
