The Wilderness Life Support (WLS:MP) program focuses on treatment of the most common injuries and illnesses encountered in the wilderness and uses a combination of lectures, practical skills training, and treatment of mock victims to reinforce the student’s wilderness medicine skills
Credits earned also apply toward the Fellow in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM). This course was formerly known as Advanced Wilderness Life Support (prior to 2023).
Course starts 10am on Monday and concludes 5pm Thursday.
Morning tea/lunch and afternoon tea are included.
Mount Buller has some spectacular downhill mountain bike trails and some great dining options. Not only will you be receiving exclusive and world-class training in wilderness medicine, but you will have the opportunity to enjoy the environment and activities that are on offer in this corner of Australia!
WLS:MP is endorsed by the Wilderness Medical Society.
