La Clusaz, France

The course takes place in a beautiful setting, high in the French Alps. This action packed week will provide you with a solid grounding in the medical skills required to work in a remote environment. You will be trekking in the Alpine flower meadows and jagged peaks by day, and enjoying alfresco dinners on midsummer evenings under the stars whilst learning a host of new skills with our inspiring team of instructors.

In order to deliver focused, hands-on training, the course is limited to a maximum number of participants. This will enable interactive teaching, tailored to individual needs, and small group work for scenarios and workshops.

Our faculty is made up of experienced expedition medics and leaders. Our medics have many years of experience providing medical cover for expeditions in extreme environments all over the world, including desert, jungle, altitude, arctic and dive medicine. Our expedition leaders and bushcraft instructors have worked in some of the most remote parts of the globe, and will be sure to inspire you with their survival and leadership skills.

Teaching is highly interactive and delivered via mix of seminars, workshops and scenarios.

This is a largely practical course. We prefer to teach on our feet by getting people hands-on with the topic or equipment being discussed. In small groups, you will be involved in daily scenarios set amongst the beautiful mountain surroundings. These will include medical scenarios, during which you will be using all your skills to problem solve and improvise in a wilderness setting. As well as gaining knowledge of expedition medicine, this course will help to develop your situational awareness and improvisation skills outside the hospital or normal working environment.
