Wilderness First Aid



In the outdoors anything can happen and it pays to be prepared. Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from conventional medical courses and other programs that are oriented toward the urban environment. These courses teach you how to approach a medical emergency when help is miles away and calling 911 isn't an option. Rutabaga's courses, brought to you by Wilderness Medical Associates, prepare you for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments and improvised equipment.

Wilderness Medical Associates International is an organization devoted to the development of remote and practical medicine. Their cutting edge curriculum is overseen and continually revised by a committee of medical practitioners and has been taught on all seven continents. They educate, train, and consult to both medical and non-medical professionals and recreationalists for practical health and patient care in low resource and unconventional settings.
