Immersive Pre-health Emergency and Wilderness Medicine Courses
Want to get outside your generic pre-med classes? Interested in emergency medicine, humanitarian relief work, wilderness medicine, or global health? Wish you could learn hands-on medical skills from med school faculty and physicians? This is the class for you!
Come explore the Colorado Rocky Mountains, shadow in a world-class ER, earn Wilderness First Responder certification, and learn from physicians who work around the world during one of our intensive pre-med/pre-health classes. Get the best of all worlds with fascinating and convenient on-line modules, a mini-med school experience at the University of Colorado School of Medicine hospital and medical school campus, and authentic Colorado adventures at a beautiful and comfortable camp set high in the Rockies.
Taught by University of Colorado School of Medicine faculty, these classes are an exciting, hands-on introduction to emergency and wilderness medicine, as well as a backstage pass to the med school application process and a career in health care. Get outside the classroom and join us to shadow world-class physicians, PAs, or nurses, participate in med school labs such as ultrasound and cardiac dissection, and to learn through realistic scenarios and simulations. You will work hard, learn a ton, have a blast, and make new friends from across the country. Scroll down for detailed course information and to register for a class today.
