Part of the bonus about being in the States this summer is the opportunity to participate in some cool continuing medical education (CME) courses. I’ve just completed a couple courses that I HIGHLY recommend to those who have ever been interested in something like what I’ve done.
The first was the Advanced Wilderness Life Support Course in Moab, UT May 28-31. Half of the program was in the desert with practicals and clinics on climbing, hiking, rafting and hiking. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun!
The second was the Management of Humanitarian Emergencies, Focus on Children and Families at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine 16-20 June. The lectures were great, but were also interactive. Several times a day, we split into small groups for problem-solving excercises related to various problems often encounterd in this setting. It was great to network with so many people with various international experiences.
