Hands-On Practical Training

RescueMED's latest course “Wilderness Rescue Medicine” is specifically designed for medical professionals seeking to broaden their skill base and build confidence in providing cutting edge medical care in remote and austere settings. This course has been developed right here in Australia for our local conditions and has particular emphasis on the medical presentations likely to be encountered in the Australian environment.

The course will provide a contemporary overview of medical care in the wilderness and will be facilitated by internationally recognised experts in wilderness medicine. We will introduce the essential components of medical care in remote and austere settings and develop individual practitioners through group discussions, workshops and increasingly challenging scenario based simulation. This will all be occurring in the tremendously beautiful setting of the Bay of Fires Lodge. This is a rare opportunity to take in the beauty of this remote coastal environment whilst pushing yourself to develop your clinical practice in a wilderness setting. Are you up for the challenge?


Wilderness Rescue Medicine is a 30 hour course and has been approved for Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM) credits through the Wilderness Medical Society. Actual credits awarded depend on personal credit needs and history.

This course can be utilised by paramedics and nurses for CPD as far as it is relevant to the individual’s practice setting.
