Course Schedule

Wilderness Medicine courses taking place during COVID-19


Due to growing safety concerns from the COVID-19 Delta variant, all in-person trainings have been temporarily suspended for at minimum, 4 to 6 weeks. As the safety and wellbeing of our students and faculty are of the utmost importance, we have implemented a temporary halt of all in-person training until the severity of the pandemic is reduced, at which point we will re-evaluate and make a determination on whether to re-open or continue the temporary suspension of in-person training. NOTE: In-person classes and hybrid course hands-on sessions are expected to resume by the end of October, 2021.


UPDATED: COVID-19 Practices, Policies + Guidelines.
