The syllabus includes sections on the physiology of exercise and high altitude, expedition and travel medicine, pre hospital care of trauma and illness in a hostile environment, first aid, patient transport and an introduction to mountain rescue techniques.
There will be a self directed distance learning aspect to the course with constant assessment but the four residential modules can be spread over up to four years.
The first course open to any interested climbing doctors will commence with the established Plas Y Brenin course on 21 - 23 November 2003. More information is available from Jackie Howarth. Phone 0116 250 2305 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
