It is an ideal opportunity for those who want to experience the realities of wilderness medicine and decisionmaking on a true wilderness expedition. The course begins with an evening orientation meeting and an opportunity to meet your fellow expedition members. The first full day will be spent in the classroom, covering foundational topics in wilderness medicine. The second day will be spent outfitting equipment and rations for a week of backpacking through the southern Wind River Range. In the field, you will be introduced to NOLS’s comprehensive outdoor skills, leadership, and wilderness medicine curricula. In addition, you may have time to fish mountain streams or climb a 12,000-foot peak. Core to the expedition are the themes of leadership and teamwork, both in a wilderness environment and in a clinical setting. Hands-on scenarios will challenge expedition members to apply their medical and team management skills, with after-action, debriefs and growth-oriented feedback. After a week of travel, the expedition will finish back in Lander with an end-of-course banquet and celebration.
